Kirkby Thore Parish Council has six Councillors (we have vacancies for a further 1 Councillor) plus a Clerk and meets in the Kirkby Thore Memorial Hall, every month, usually on the first Monday of the month.

All the Councillors are voluntary, part-time and take neither salary nor expenses whereas the Clerk, also part-time, receives a small salary.

Kirkby Thore Councillors are very ‘hands-on’ and are frequently involved in site visits, meeting with District and County Councillors regarding traffic calming measures, footpaths, bus services etc.
