Preston Capes Parish Council provides YOUR local services in conjunction with your District and County counclls (soon to become the West Northamptonshire Unitary authority). We strive to make Preston Capes a better place to live, work and visit. Our website includes a wealth of information about how we conduct our business and what we do. Find local groups and businesses in our community directory. Use the search facilities or browse the site to find whatever you are looking for. If you can't find what you want or would like to recommend any improvements to our website then please contact us.

The village has a friendly and active social media group on FaceBook (independent of the Parish Council). It is a private group called Preston Capes. Other village organisations are listed under the Community tab (left).

You may gain a quick feel of all the many varied activities within the village, by browsing through the ANNUAL PARISH MEETING reports, by clicking here.

Your Parish Council is Local Government in action, with local democracy ensuring accountability and response to local needs. The council comprises villagers, elected to serve four year terms without payment, save a better living environment for us all. To ensure fair play and accountability for public funds, the council abides by Local Governance documentation and procedures, reviewed annually and listed on this site.

Gratitude is expressed to David Wilkinson who has personally run and hosted the village web site on behalf of the villages of Preston Capes and Little Preston over many years. Much of this site's content is based upon his endeavours and other village contributors - Gary Denby, Parish Clerk, May 2020.
