Ashmanhaugh Parish Council

A Parish Council is elected every 4 years and the last full election was held in May 2015.  Ashmanhaugh Parish Council is made up of 7  Councillors who, to comply with current legislation, have to be over 18 years of age and either live, work or own property in Ashmanhaugh or within 3 miles of the village.  The next election will be in May 2019.

The councillors are: Steven Bland, Andrew Buxton, Harry Buxton, Noel Coleman, Chris Phillipo and Gary Saunders.  Councillors can be contacted directly or via the Clerk.  There is currently one vacancy on the Council.

Ashmanhaugh is a small village in North Norfolk, situated 2 miles from Wroxham and very close to the popular visitor attraction, Wroxham Barns.  In the village is a Norman Church, which, it is thought, has the smallest round tower in Norfolk. The old village school, which is now called The Preston Room, is the village hall. Look at the Events on this website to find out when Parish Council meetings are taking place as well as the dates and times of all the other functions.
This website is the only place you can see all the events taking place in the village.
