Open Meeting for all in the Parish

Mon, 13 Sep 2021 19:30

This meeting has been arranged as a follow up to the Annual Parish Meeting that was held remotely on Thursday 27 May 2021 and follows on from the last Open meeting that was held in April 2019

The Annual Parish Meeting is a legacy from the Middle Ages, when Local Councils did not exist, and all local decision making was carried out by meetings of the whole community

The Annual Parish Meeting is NOT a Parish Council meeting. It does not have the formality of a Parish Council meeting nor can it make decisions. It is more of an open forum for you to generate discussion, questions and ideas.

The purpose of the meeting is to provide a window for local organisations to share what they do, when they meet etc but just as importantly, it is for you to generate and discuss ideas, thoughts and concerns you have about the village, it's amenities, what you would like to see (or not see) in the village, along with proposals/solutions on how to achieve things.

If you are unable to attend but would like to raise something then please contact the Clerk, by email, by phone or by letter beforehand so that it can be included on an "agenda" for the evening.

Refreshments of wine & soft drinks will be available (free of charge

Venue:
