The Council is a statutory body and elections for members are held every four years. The last election was in 2011 and the Parish can have 12 Councillors. The chairman and vice-chairman are appointed by councillors each year in May. At that time members are also appointed to the Council’s subcommittees and as council representatives on other bodies. The Council employs a Clerk to the Council, on a part-time basis, who is the sole financial and administrative officer.
The monthly Parish Council meetings are open to members of the public who, although not able to participate in proceedings may, at the discretion of the Chairman, be invited to address the Council on matters of particular individual interest which appear on the agenda for the meeting.
Parishioners who wish to bring a matter of concern to the notice of the Council should, contact the Clerk, or a Councillor It is helpful if a telephone call or informal chat is followed up with a letter, however brief it may be.
