The Eaton Bray Parish Council is responsible for community centres, arts and leisure facilities, parks and play areas, public conveniences and other services within Eaton Bray, and have a right to be notified about planning applications in the area.
As a result of the Government’s announcement to continue the limitation of gatherings and encouraging social distancing in order to reduce the spread of Coronavirus, members of Eaton Bray Parish Council have concluded that the Parish Council Meeting rescheduled for Monday 25th May 2020 is to be cancelled. A new date will be confirmed as soon as we are able.
In the meantime, Eaton Bray Parish Council are still active and providing support for the village. A monthly report of actions taken will be available here.

Eaton Bray play parks temporary closure
Following Government advice, the Eaton Bray play parks in School Lane Recreation Ground and The Rye Recreation Ground are closed.
Whilst the open space remains open for public exercise in line with the Government’s guidance, please ensure your children do not use the swings, slides and other play equipment during this time of isolation. This is to aid in the stopping of the spread of COVID-19 and we urge all parishioners to abide by this guidance.
Following the instructions around movement and gatherings from the Prime Minister on 23 March 2020, we are monitoring daily advice from the UK central government. As we understand the situation at the moment it is still permitted to visit your allotment plot, ideally on your own to take daily exercise. Therefore the Eaton Bray allotment sites at The Meads and Holmans Field remain open at present and will remain open unless we are advised otherwise.
Bower Lane cemetery restrictions
Losing a loved one is a sad and distressing experience, and funerals are important and personal. During this very difficult time for the country, the Government’s aim is to protect the most vulnerable from the spread of coronavirus.
Public Health England (PHE) have stipulated that funerals must be conducted in a manner consistent with social distancing principles to avoid the further spread of Covid-19.
We are very mindful of such a sensitive matter, however we also have to consider guidance from the Government – the key outcome is that funerals should continue, as normally as possible for now, but take into account the guidelines issued for minimising the risk of transmission.
Litter Pick Day - CANCELLED
**update: the litter pick day has been cancelled following Government advice and will be rescheduled**
A village-wide litter pick will take place on Saturday 18th April, 2020.
It’s a chance for the whole family, local clubs and groups, to get together and do something for the environment. Please come and help clean up the village – every piece of plastic and rubbish collected is a piece of plastic or rubbish that doesn’t get into our rivers and seas.
Please join us in helping keep our village clean.
