Parish Council Welcome

We warmly welcome you to the Barrowby Parish Council website where we aim to ensure that the people of Barrowby are kept up to date on Parish Council matters, events and general happenings within the village.

Barrowby is situated in the county of Lincolnshire, close to the borders of Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire.  The Parish Council’s headquarters is The Reading Room,  which is situated  in the centre of  the village and is also available to hire for functions.  The village stands approx. 2 miles outside the town of Grantham, on the A52 road travelling north to Nottingham.

Barrowby, one of the largest villages in the district of South Kesteven, has a population of around 2,000. There is a Primary school, a church,‘The Cakehole’ store, Deli and café, post office, , butcher, Memorial hall and at the heart of the community ‘the local’, The White Swan pub. W.I., coffee morning club, toddler groups and a church youth club/Teddy Bear club.   Sport is also popular, boasting  very strong junior and senior football clubs plus a cricket team.  The Parish Council, in conjunction with the Football Foundation, have built a new pavilion on Lowfield sports ground; something Barrowby had been striving towards for the last 20 years. This new village facility was opened in July 2008 and is now in use by sports teams and other private hirers.
