Meetings usually begin at 19:30hrs with a Public Forum at which any resident of the village may address the Council on matters affecting the community, but please note the Public Forum is not a decision making forum.The Council may only reach a decision on a matter which appears on the formal agenda for the meeting, so while the Councillors will be happy to listen to your concerns and provide any relevant information, any issue requiring a decision may have to be placed on the agenda of a future meeting.

Formal Council Meetings will immediately follow the Public Forum discussion.

The Annual Parish Meeting is an occasion for electors to raise any concerns they may have. They may wish to discuss parish affairs, make resolutions and vote but these are not legally binding for the Council. The Parish Meeting may pass resolutions on the public activities or policies in the parish of any local authority, public body, government department of public service provided that they affect the parish specially and are not such as are calculated to affect the whole country or all parishes. Electors may speak and vote.

The meeting must be held each year between 1st March and 1st June.

The Annual  Meeting of the Parish Council can also be known as the Annual Meeting of the Parish Council. It is held to elect the Chairman, Vice-Chairman, appoint representatives onto outside bodies, council sub-groups and approve the end of year accounts.
