Welcome to Selling Parish Council

The Parish Council is an important tier of local government and works on behalf of Selling residents to make the whole village an even better place. We hold a formal statutory Parish Council meeting every month of the year, usually on the third Thursday, and during the pandemic online by Zoom starting at 6.00 p.m.


We welcome your contributions of news, events, photos of village life, stories, ideas and of course feedback on our new website. Please use the Contact Us tab above.
