Annual Parish Council Meeting and May Parish Council Meeting

The agendas for the Annual Parish Council meeting and May Parish Council meeting are now online on the Meetings page. The meetings will take place on Wednesday 11th from 7:00pm in the Reading Rooms. The open forum will be held prior to the May parish council meeting and commence following the Annual Parish Council meeting. We would particularly invite comments and queries ref agenda items but other issues can be addressed. The open forum will last for up to 25 minutes and the chair will ensure that the time allocated to people is fair.
