Local Government

Parish Council

The Parish Council has 10 members and is elected every four years. The next election will be in 1999. Those interested in serving on the Parish Council are particularly welcome to attend meetings, and should ask the Clerk for advice on election procedures. The Council normally meets in the Village Hall committee room at 7.30pm on the second Monday every other month: in January, in March (this meeting includes the annual Parish Meeting when the Council reports back to anyone who wishes to come), in May, when officers and committees are elected for the following year, in July, September and November. The times and the agenda of each meeting is posted on the notice boards by the village shop and in Forton about a week before the meeting. Parishioners are welcome to attend any meeting, and time is made available for them to voice any concerns. The two District Councillors try to attend Council Meetings, and the County Councillor will attend if there is a compelling issue affecting the County. The Council employs a part-time Clerk to deal with all correspondence, take minutes, and execute Council decisions.
