Elsham is a small rural village that nestles under the Lincolnshire Wolds in North Lincolnshire.

The parish council consists of members elected from within the parish and a part-time clerk.The parish council represents the lowest tier of local government and is drawn from the electorate of the village.

Funding is by precept levied on households within the village. The council's powers are limited to local issues, and the representation of villagers' views to the principal authority.





Thanks to all who opened their gardens and to all who helped on the day.

Unfortunately we had to compete with a torrential downpour and the joint distractions of Formula 1 at Silverstone, tennis at Wimbledon (well done to Lewis and Andy) and other local village open garden events.

The event, held on Sunday 10th July, raised £700 for the planned children's playground and adult exrecise area.
