HRH The Prince Philip – Duke of Edinburgh

It is with great sadness that the Parish Council notes the death of Prince Philip. The Prince gave a long and devoted service to his family, the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth and was an inspiration to many. His great idea of the Duke of Edinburgh awards inspired many young people to fulfil their potential and often to exceed their expectations.

Our thoughts and condolences are with the Queen and the Royal Family.

Book of Condolence
Regrettably, due to the pandemic there will be no public condolence book set up but members of the public wishing to express their condolences are encouraged to send a message to the Royal Family via the online Book of Condolence on The Buckingham Palace website.

Welcome to Alfriston Parish Council’s website.

The civil parish of Alfriston has a population of approximately 830 and is in the Wealden district of East Sussex County Council.

Alfriston Parish Council is a statutory local authority set up under the Local Government Act of 1972. Elections to the Parish Council are held every four years. There are currently 7 Parish Councillors who meet regularly to make decisions on how national and regional policy translate to village life. Alfriston Parish Councillors do not receive a salary but contribute their time and energy to ensure the smooth running of the community.

Members of the public are encouraged to attend Parish Council meetings which are held on the 3rd Monday of the month (except in August and December – when there is no meeting). Meetings are held in Alfriston War Memorial Hall and start at 7.30 p.m. Meetings are preceded by Public Questions at 7.15 p.m.

The agendas and minutes of meetings are displayed on the village noticeboards and can be downloaded from the Agendas & Minutes page on this website.

All Parish Councillors, except for the Chairman, have designated portfolios – areas of village life for which they take the lead role.
