Annual Parish Meeting
It is a statutory function of a local council to hold an Annual Parish meeting. This is a community meeting made up of the local government electors in the parish and the purpose of the meeting is to discuss 'parish affairs'. This can be any issue or topic that specifically affects the parish or community area. The meeting helps to engage residents with the Parish Council. The meeting is called by the Chairman of the Council and is held between 1 March and 1 June each year after 6pm. This is to encourage a large attendance to get the maximum benefit from the meeting.
