What does the town council do?

The town council works towards improving community well-being and providing better services for the village. They are the tier of local government below the level of North Lincolnshire council and are the tier of local government closest to residents.

The town council manages the village’s Cemetery grounds, Cemetery house, Manor Park, Ealand Park and is landlord for Crowle Allotment Society. The town council works closely with all community groups who deliver a wide range of activities and leisure opportunities.
