The 10 councillors for Sixpenny Handley & Pentridge take an active interest in the local community. They represent the local people and if necessary work in partnership with them and others.

Elections are held every four years most recently in May 2019.

The administrative work of the Parish Council is carried out by the Parish Clerk,  a part-time employee, to whom problems, concerns and suggestions may be referred. Individual Parish Councillors are,also, always pleased to help directly if they possibly can.
