Great Rissington Parish is in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the North Cotswolds. Set on the western side of Rissington Hill and surrounded by farmland and open countryside,  the village has sweeping views of the Windrush valley between Bourton-on –the-Water and Burford. It comprises some 350 people, 150 houses, a primary school, an active sports and social club, a 12th century church and an Inn.

The main objective of this website is to provide information on the Parish Council: it’s meetings, finance and governance. It also provides information likely to be of interest to parishioners provided by Cotswold District Council and Gloucestershire County Council.

We are shortly launching a regular email community newsletter to keep you informed of important village and local matters, news, community activities and events. If you would like to sign up, please complete the form here.
