ANNUAL PARISH MEETING
ANCASTER, SUDBROOK & WEST WILLOUGHBY 
NOTICE OF MEETING

You are hereby invited to attend the ANNUAL PARISH MEETING for the villages of Ancaster, Sudbrook and West Willoughby to be held on 20 APRIL 2015 in the Parish Hall Ancaster at 7.30pm. Those of you who have attended previously will be aware of the regular items on the agenda, which are listed below and there is an opportunity for any resident to raise an issue which they consider important. 

Purpose of the Annual Parish Meeting – The main purpose is to enable the registered electors to discuss parish affairs and to pass resolutions thereon. This meeting is also an opportunity for the Council and community group leaders to update the community about their activities over the last year and outline plans for the future.

Who can attend the meeting? – Anyone may attend but only registered electors in the parish of Ancaster may speak and vote.

Will I be able to ask questions and make resolutions? – Yes, any registered elector may ask questions of the Council. These will usually be answered by the Chairman or by the Parish Clerk or a designated Councillor. An elector may also make suggestions and comment on parish issues and propose resolutions. Resolutions relating to allotments are legally binding but all others are persuasive only, but will be considered by the Parish Council at future meetings.

Who will chair the meeting? – The Chairman of the Parish Council must chair the meeting if present. In his absence the Vice-Chairman must preside if present. If neither is able to attend, then the meeting will elect a Chairman from those electors present.

Will Parish Councillors be there? – Although there is no compulsion, Councillors normally attend. They will speak if required, but the purpose of the meeting is to enable the ordinary electors to have their say. Councillors will listen with interest and as electors themselves, also will have the opportunity to raise questions and make comments if they wish.

Will notes be taken at the meeting? – Yes, a written record of the meeting will be taken by the Parish Clerk and kept. The rules on the signature and admissibility of minutes are the same as those for Parish Council meetings.

How long will the meeting last? – As long as need be within reason. It really depends on those present and the number of questions and the discussion that is raised. The meeting will probably last one hour.
