Parish Council meetings are open public meetings and are held on the First Wednesday of every month. The meetings take place in the Forbes lounge at the Parish Hall and usually commence at 7.30 pm.† The accessibility of the Parish Hall is given on their page here

Everyone is welcome to observe the meetings and to contribute during public participation.

If there is an issue in the Parish that you are concerned about, or an idea you would like to share with us then please let us know. Either attend one of the meetings, phone or email a Councillor or the Clerk

The Parish Council is the voice of the parish to local and ultimately central government, if we don't know what you want then we can not speak for you.

The Agenda for any forthcoming meeting is put on the official noticeboards next to the Spar and in the village Car Park before each Meeting and details are given below.
