Welcome to Matfen Parish Council

Welcome to the website for Matfen Parish Council, which includes the villages of Matfen, Fenwick, Ingoe and Ryal. We hope this site will become useful both to residents and visitors to the area.

The site is run by the Parish Council which is here to help provide the facilities you want to see in the area and, where possible, to deal with local problems as they arise. In addition the site seeks to provide information on local social activities and essential services in the area.

The Parish Council meets every 2 months in Matfen Village Hall and you are welcome to attend meetings. Agendas and meetings and minutes are posted on the Matfen Parish Council notice board at the village hall, and they are also accessible on this website.

The next meeting of the Parish Council will be held on Tuesday 24 March 2020 at 7.00pm in Matfen Village Hall.

Proposed New Play Area on the Village Green

Matfen Parish Council are currently in the process of reviewing potential options for the precise location and layout of a proposed children's play area in the Old Garden Area of the village green, in the triangular area to the southern side of the stream.  Once we have a clear proposal and potential options to share, we will publish them here on the Parish Council website, and also on all our Parish noticeboards.  We are also planning a wider Parish postal drop along with an open day in the Village Hall, when members of the Parish Council will be available to discuss the plans and assist with any questions from the community - exact dates to be confirmed.

It is important that any decisions take into account the views of the Parish as a whole and we would encourage people to give their feedback on these proposed plans, once they are published for consultation, via whatever means or forum works for them.
