Welcome to Kirkby Thore’s Parish Website


The Parish Council is returning to face to face meetings.  The meetings remain open to the public but we have been advised by Cumbria Association of Local Councils that attendance of the public must be limited to 6 attendees as prescribed by central government regulations.  The Parish Council will continue to represent the interest of the parish at this challenging time.  Parish Councillors and the Clerk are contactable via email and phone.  We will continue to support the community and deliver services where possible.  Please get in touch with the contact page if you believe we may be able to help you.

Future Parish Council meetings are under constant review and will be held in the Memorial Hall .

The schedule of meeting dates can be accessed here.


Volunteers in the Parish are running a series of schemes to help those finding themselves vulnerable in the current unprecedented times.

The Village Hall Facebook page is publishing relevant information and coordinating messages for help where possible.  You can access their facebook page through the following link  https://www.facebook.com/kthallandrec

The Village Stores have a delivery service set up with willing volunteers.  The householder is asked to call the shop on 017683 61342 directly and then the shop asks one of the volunteers to deliver.  Posters and leaflets have been circulated about this.

Thank you to all those who are simply looking out for neighbours and family, your help makes a real difference to Kirkby Thore.
