|April||9||Annual Parish Meeting||Jubilee Hall|
|April||9||Council Meeting||Jubilee Hall|
|May||7||Annual Meeting (within 14 days of elections)||Committee Room|
The Parish Council meets in the order of six weekly in the Jubilee Hall or Committee Room at the Village Hall on a Tuesday, typically excluding August and December.
As Councillors are elected in May their first meeting is the Annual Meeting of the Council. This is where a Chairman and Vice Chairman is elected and Committee Members and Representatives to other bodies are appointed. This is a meeting of the Council.
Annual Parish Meeting
This is not a Council meeting. It is a meeting of the parish electors and must take place between 1st March and 1st June. Electors can contribute to the agenda and in practice these meetings often celebrate local activities and debate current issues in the community. The Chairman of the Council, any two Councillors or any six Electors can call the Annual Parish Meeting. It is best practice to hold the Annual Meeting of the Council and the Annual Parish Meeting on different occasions to avoid confusion.
