Cold Higham Parish Council consists of a maximum of 7 elected councillors who serve for a four year term. All Councillors are voluntary and receive no payment whatsoever.

Council Meetings are normally held in the Village Hall on the 3rd Thursday of eight months (January, March, May, June, July, September, October, November) - see the diary of meetings for more information.

The Parish Council maintains the war memorial, the cemetery, street lighting, grass verges, benches and noticeboards (including the old telephone kiosks in Cold Higham and Grimscote villages).


Our councillors are elected or co-opted. Currently there are no vacancies but if you would like to become a councillor or find out more about what they do, then please contact the Clerk
