Do you love to read?

Do you have any spare, unwanted or unloved books?

If yes, why not donate them to our upcoming book library so that they can find a new lease of life.

Please bring any unwanted books along to the parish hall and simply leave them in the reception.

We will put them in a bookcase and they will be made available to everyone.

All we ask is that you either return the book when finished or replace it with another unwanted book so that the book stock is continually replenished.

Hollings Lane Playing Field

Please note that this field is for ball sports only, primarily, the two local football teams and Thrybergh residents wishing to play ball sports.

It is not for the use of off road vehicles and motorcycles and their use is prohibited.

The recent activities of these off road vehicles has caused damage to the field gates and surface of the pitch that will require extensive and expensive repairs. This is not a victimless crime as these costs will have to be met by the rate payers of Thrybergh.

Anyone seeing off road vehicles and motorcycles are urged to contact the police immediately.

The role of the Parish Council

A Parish Council is a tier of local government closest to the people. Parish Councils are generally elected by local people to represent local interests and provide local services. The Parish Council represents and serves the whole of its local community. Each Parish Council is made up of individual councillors who contribute to the work of the council by:

  • Suggesting ideas
  • Responding to the needs and views of the community
  • Representing their constituents
  • Commenting on proposals such as planning applications

The Parish Council works in partnership with Rotherham Borough Council and other local bodies such as South Yorkshire Police and South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive.

The Borough Council has many legal duties to deliver services such as education housing, planning and social services. Whilst the Parish Council has a more limited range of duties and powers it plays a vital part in representing your local interests and concerns.

How do we make decisions?

Your parish council is made up of a number of councillors who meet regularly to make decisions on the work and direction of the council. These meetings provide time for local residents to raise matters of concern or ask questions relating to local issues.

As elected bodies parish councils are responsible to the people they represent – that’s your local community. Attending a council meeting is the best way to find out what we do.

Where do we get our money from?

Each year a sum of money called a ‘precept’ is collected through your council tax. This money is used by your parish council to improve facilities and services for local people. The Parish council can also apply for grants, loans and receives money from rents and leases.
