The Parish Council is the level of local
Government nearest to the people of Avebury Parish. This covers the following
areas: Avebury village, Avebury Trusloe, Beckhampton and West Kennett.
A Parish like Avebury was usually formed around a village or small community
and may have originally been centred around the Parish Church. The Church and
the state separated but the same areas are now represented by the Parish Council
& the Church by the Parochial Church Council.
Avebury is a World Heritage Site and the Stone Circle is owned by English Heritage and run by the National Trust. The National Trust own much of the land and several of the houses in this Village. Many of the houses are tenanted as is Manor Farm. Avebury. Many visitors arrive in the area to see the stone circle and to wander round the dykes. Nearby is Silbury Hill, West Kennett Long Barrow and the Sanctuary.
Avebury is well served by other groups within the area, i.e. The Over 60's Club, The Womens Institute, an active Church and a Working Mens Club. The Chapel at the top of the High Street and within the Chapel, a Tourist information centre.
The Social Centre (opposite the Church in the High Street) holds many functions during the year. For Booking this, please contact Mrs Joan Greenaway.
Meetings of Avebury Parish Council are held on the 1st Tuesday of each month except for August and January when there are no meetings.
