All Cannings Parish Council is the level of local government in the Kennet district of Wiltshire closest to the people of All Cannings. The old parishes were formed at a time when there was little difference, to the local people, between the Church and the State. A parish like All Cannings formed around the village area and was centred around the Parish Church.

In the late 1800s Church and State separated but the same area is now represented as a local authority by the All Cannings Parish Council and the Church of England by the Parochial Church Council.

The Parish Council has many powers and some duties. (see. The Good Councillors Guide).

Parish Steward

The Parish Steward visits All Cannings one day a month to carry out routine maintenance tasks. There is a list of the sort of tasks the Parish Steward can undertake and if you know of a job for them you can email the Parish Clerk who will pass it on.
