Eydon is a generally quiet village, towards the south west corner of rural Northamptonshire. It comprises about four hundred inhabitants (about one quarter below the age of 18, judging from the response to commemorative Jubilee coins), with a aerial grid-like structure to its four principal roads and lanes. The centre area of the village has been designated a Conservation Area, seeking to retain this structure and the ambiance of local stone dwellings. Amongst this idyll there is a small band of elected villagers who have volunteered to promote its ongoing charm, to organsise its mundanities and to resolve minor disputes, as is within their power to do so. This merry band is called The Parish Council...
On this site, you can discover how the Parish Council is elected, its councillors and what it is busy doing. There is a document archive, provided in good faith but on an as-is basis, detailing past meetings and the past and current budgets. The general public are welcome to the monthly Parish Coucil meetings and have an opportunity at its commencement to raise village concerns and issues, particularly in regard to the distrubuted agenda for the meeting. There is an Annual Parish Assembly at which reports of the wide range of village activities are presented.
