Welcome to the website of the
Albrighton Parish Council

On our website you will find interesting information about Albrighton Parish Council and the Village of Albrighton.

We hope you will use it regularly to keep up to date with what your Councillors are doing,
what's going on, local news and useful information for all the people of Albrighton.

Our aim is that the website will help local people get involved and perhaps come along to Council meetings to ask questions
and express their views about matters under discussion.

The Full Parish Council meets on the first Thursday of each month with the exception of August,
committee's meet as necessary. Further information can be found further down this page.
