Annual Meetings – Tuesday 8th and Tuesday 15th May 2018

The Parish Council is holding its Annual Meeting of the Council at 7PM on Tuesday 8th May and the Annual Parish Meeting at 7PM on Tuesday 15th May 2018.

The Annual Meeting of the Council is where we elect a chairman and review policies and procedures.

The Annual Parish Meeting is not a formal council meeting but a meeting of the parish electors. The Parish Council invite the public and press to hear reports from the Chairman, District and County Councillors, the Police and neighbourhood groups.  It also enables electors to have their say on anything they consider is important to the people of the Parish.
