The Parish Council conducts formal meetings bi-monthly and annually.  An agenda is prepared and posted in the Parish Council Business.  Following the meeting the Meeting Minutes are prepared and posted here also.  To carry out its business effectively, there may be additional informal meetings conducted, the outcomes of which are noted at the next formal Parish Council meeting.

Join a meeting
Residents are most welcome to attend formal Parish Council Meetings and seats are always available.  Look out for dates on this site.  If a resident has a subject they would like to discuss specifically at the meeting, they should notify the Chair in advance, as residents are respectfully asked not speak during proceedings unless the Chair permits them to do so.
