We work for a pleasant village spirit and want to keep a high profile for our part of the municipality of Ingå/Inkoo. All inhabitants of the area which formerly made up the municipality of Degerby are automatically also members of the village council. Please contact us if you have new initiatives and ideas. Everybody is welcome to work with us.

 
Degerby Village Council (Degerby byaråd)
- was founded in 1991 as an interest- and discussion group for the inhabitants of Degerby.
- inaugurated the Museum Degerby Igor in the summer of 1997. The museum presents the Porkkala lease period 1944-1956. Every year we have over 3 000 visitors from Finland and abroad. 
- renovated the main building 'Rosenberg' (picture), which served as administrative center for the former municipality of Degerby.
- has carried through four Leader+projects successfully.
- administers this homepage, updates it and manages the event calender.
- contantly works on making Degerby a better place for its inhabitants, tourists and passers-by, by executing the village plan.
- arranges village meetings, lectures and a Christmas market. The Degerby Day is arranged on the first Saturday in August and a combined autumn bonfire and harvest celebration the last weekend in August. Read more about upcoming events!
