Meetings of the Parish Council are held bi-monthly
Meetings are open to the public, who are very welcome to attend.
The meetings are held in the village hall. Tea and Coffee is available from 7.15pm with the Parish Council meeting starting at 7.30pm.
Due to the ongoing Covid 19 pandemic and new government instructions concerning public meetings and social distancing, the Council will not meet in public until further notice. Both the National Association of Local Councils (NALC) and the Society of Local Council Clerks (SLCC) are asking local councils to stop holding any physical meetings during this time. This includes full council meetings, committee/sub-group meetings and the annual parish meeting. As a result, future meetings will be held remotely only for urgent issues and the meeting's agenda will therefore be kept to the minimum necessary, with emphasis on maintaining financial oversight and authorising and making payments. The Council's annual meeting will take place when physical council meetings resume.
Members of the public who are interested in attending the Council's remote meetings should email the Parish Clerk at firstname.lastname@example.org who will then share the necessary Zoom-hosted video conference meeting link on the day of the meeting. As an alternative, councillors and members of the public will also be advised how to phone in to the meeting to listen and contribute in the usual way.
As part of the recently introduced Transparency Code the audit of the Parish Council finances has to be published for public viewing and as such can be found under the tab headed Audit
