Colmworth is a North Bedfordshire rural village with easy access to Bedford, St Neots and the A1.
The Parish, which comprises approximately 170 dwellings and 400 people, is mostly arable agricultural land, with many footpaths and bridleways, making it very attractive to walkers and horse riders.
The Village Hall is a well-used meeting point for the History Society, scouts & Cubs, carpet bowls and dancing classes etc. and also there is a golf course nearby.
For those with spiritual needs there is a fine Church and a small Mission Chapel and to satisfy the inner man, there is Cornfields restaurant. There is a recreation ground with excellent play equipment and a football pitch and a Country Park with a bird hide if you like to commune with nature.
The Parish Council is funded from the precept component of the Council Tax, and is staffed by councillors who can be voted in or out at the Local Government elections.
The Clerk of the council is a professional paid post, and is there to make sure that all Parish Council activities are legal and in line with laid down guidelines. The Parish Council meets once every two months, with an agenda for each meeting always published in advance - and members of the public are welcome to ask for items to be placed on an agenda for consideration and discussion by the Council.
All parishioners are welcome to attend the Council meetings and express a view, a concern or just to observe proceedings.
