Please not the date of the April Parish Council meeting and the venue for the May meeting has changed. Please see details below.


The April meeting of the Elton Parish Council will be held on Thursday 13 April 2017, starting at 7:30pm in Elton Village Hall.

The planned meeting of the Elton Parish Council on Thursday 6 April 2017 has been cancelled. This is because not enough members can attend on this date. The new meeting date has been set for the following Thursday.


The May meeting of the Elton Parish Council will be held on Thursday 4 May 2017, starting at 7:30pm in Elton Church.

The May meeting of Elton Parish Council clashes with elections for Derbyshire County Council.

The Village Hall will be used as the Elton Polling Station, so the Parish Council meeting, therefore, will be held in Elton Church instead. The date and start time remain unchanged.
