Welcome, to the website of the Grouped Parish Council for the three villages of Flixton, St Cross South Elmham and St Margaret South Elmham. These three villages are situated on the western edge of the East Suffolk District Council area. They are part of a larger collection of villages known as 'The Saints' which was for many years (until recently) a electoral ward of the district council.

Flixton, having the larger population has four councillors whilst St Cross and St Margaret both have three. The Parish Council usually meets bi-monthly on a Monday evening
