  • Parish Precept The Parish Council resolved to set  a Parish Precept for the next financial year at 2% higher than the current year. The increase is to cover additional costs of insurance, the salary costs of the clerk, and a small increase in the cost of printing the community newsletter. It will also enable a contribution to be made towards the cost of road safety measures to slow traffic down in the centre of Thurgoland, if an acceptable scheme can be agreed with Barnsley MBC.The impact of the 2% increased precept for the Parish will be that Council Tax for a Band D property will increase by 29 pence for the whole year 2017-18.

  • WELCOME !!! WE HAVE A NEW WEBMASTER AND A NEW LOOK WEBSITE. Following some technical difficulties with the previous organisation hosting our website it has been decided to use the skill and knowledge of our new volunteer webmaster Dean Hughes. And the outcome is a new look website with a much lower annual maintenance cost.You are currently looking at the basic version, and over the next few weeks and months many of the favourite elements of the old site will return. So we hope our many community groups will take stock and update their pages as they are uploaded back onto the site. Please contact our webmaster Dean if you need some assistance with this.Please let us know what you think!
