ANNUAL PARISH MEETING
The Parish Council is required by law to hold an Annual Parish Meeting.
The Annual Parish Meeting is NOT a meeting of the Parish Council. It is a meeting for all the local government electors living within the parish boundary. This is usually held in May each year. This meeting is held so that the Parish Council can explain what it has done over the last year; to enable you to ask questions and give you an opportunity to have your say on anything you consider is important to our community and parish area going forward. The Annual Report for 2017/18, presented at the last meeting in May 2018, can be found under “Council” – Agenda’s and Minutes.
