The Council was formed in 2004 and presently consists of Chair, Vice Chair, eight Councillors and a clerk. Our main aim is to both improve and enhance the "Village" for the benefit of all. Adult residents number approximately 4300.

Drighlington is situated midway between Leeds, Bradford, Wakefield and Halifax, and it's main claim to fame apart from being mentioned in the "Doomsday Book" (Dreslington) is Adwalton Common being the site of a battle in 1643 between the Royalists and parliamentarians. Details of the battle are well documented in English Heritage.

Annual events we stage are Easter Egg hunt mainly aimed at children up to 11 years, a Village Gala and Parade usually in July with as many activities as possible (attendances usually around the 3000 mark), switch on of the Christmas Tree lights and carol singing. We have also created a "Quiet Garden" which is planted with over 30 "Remember Me" roses. This enables those who wish to sit and reflect. A Multi Use Games area and Skate Board park have also been created primarily for older children; this augments a pre existing play area for the younger ones.
