Do YOU want to make a real difference?


...and get involved in the important issues in the Villages such as environment, playground, speeding , buildings and planning regulation and many other issues? If so then why not become a Beetley Parish Councillor. We meet on the first Thursday of each month in Beetley Village Hall.


If you are interested please contact the Clerk, or attend one of our meetings and get a feeling as to what is involved. We're happy to answer any questions you may have.

Speed Watch Volunteers Needed

The Parish continues to suffer from drivers speeding through the villages.  The Police recently hosted a road safety meeting attended by County Councillors, Speed Watch team representatives and members of the 
public. At the meeting the Police strongly pointed out how much they appreciated the work of the Speed Watch teams and how this led to more effective road safety policing. Beetley Parish Council supports the Beetley Speed Watch team. If you would like to assist, or to find out more, please contact George Hayes via
