It is with great sadness that we have today learnt of the death of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. He supported his country over many decades with the utmost dedication and distinction and was a much-loved member of our Royal Family. He will be sorely missed.
On behalf of the people of Leonard Stanley I wish to convey our deepest sympathy to Her Majesty The Queen and all members of her family at this terribly sad time. More »

Parish councils make all kinds of decisions on issues that affect the local community. Probably the most common topics that parish councils get involved with are planning matters (they are statutory consultees), crime prevention, managing open spaces and campaigning for and delivering better services and facilities.
