The Annual Parish Assembly is an opportunity for members of the public to learn what activities the various Organisations in the village carry out during the year. It is also an opportunity to raise any issues with the Parish Council. Only parishioners who are registered on the Electoral Roll can vote on any issues. Other members of the public can attend and speak but they cannot vote.
The Annual Parish Assembly must be held annually between 1st March and 1st June. The meeting must not commence earlier than 6.00 p.m. and cannot be held in any premises used for the supply of alcohol unless no other room is available either at no cost or at a reasonable fee.
The Parish Council arrange the Annual Parish Assembly but the meeting is not a Parish Council meeting. If the Parish Council Chairman is present at the meeting he/she must preside at the meeting. If the Chairman is absent then the Vice-Chair must chair the meeting. If neither are present those attending the meeting should appointment a Chairman for the evening.
Please note that due to COVID-19 the 2020 Annual Parish Assembly was cancelled.
