Welcome to Matfen Parish Council

Welcome to the website for Matfen Parish Council, which includes the villages of Matfen, Fenwick, Ingoe and Ryal. We hope this site will become useful both to residents and visitors to the area.

The site is run by the Parish Council which is here to help provide the facilities you want to see in the area and, where possible, to deal with local problems as they arise. In addition the site seeks to provide information on local social activities and essential services in the area.

The Parish Council meets every 2 months in Matfen Village Hall and you are welcome to attend meetings. Agendas and meetings and minutes are posted on the Matfen Parish Council notice board at the village hall, and they are also accessible on this website.
