NLPC General and Trust Meetings to be held on Monday 24th January at 7.30 pm in the Community Centre

Please click in the links below for the agendas and papers.


Some eight months ago the siting of benches around the circular walk of Glebe Rd, the Settings, Moor Lane and near South Luffenham was proposed. Finally the Benches have been sited and provide a place to rest awhile, especially those less able, and enjoy the countryside.

North Luffenhan and South Luffenham Parish Councils would like to thank the residents of North and South Luffenham and the organisations for their generous donations that have made this possible.

Thanks also to Ash Bates for his help in securing the benches to their bases
