The Parish Council
The Parish Council is made up of seven members who all live in Sparham and represent the village on various matters.
We are effectively the third tier of local government, the other two being Norfolk County Council and Breckland District Council.
The Parish Council usually meet four times a year, at 7.30 pm in the Old School Room on the second Tuesday of February, May, September and November.
Members of the public are very welcome to attend and are able to speak during the open forum, which is part of every meeting.
The Council are always keen to hear from anyone with ideas on how to improve local facilities.
