About The Parish Council

Since the inaugural meeting of Inskip-With-Sowerby Parish Council on the 4th December 1894 much has changed but the ethos of the Council remains the same, to work for the good of the village. The Parish Council meet on the third Thursday of the month (except August* & December) and on a number of other occasions when it is deemed necessary to deal with a particular issue. *Meetings in August are held on Carrs Green Common.
