Who we are & what we do
Role of the Council
The Parish Council serves to look after the interests of the community and aims to ensure that the village is, and remains a place in which we like to live. The role of the Council is described here.
The Parish Council is made up of 11 elected Councillors. Councillors are elected every four years by residents of the village, and we are always keen to attract new Councillors. If you are interested in becoming one and would like to know more about what is involved, please see contact details below.
There are currently 3 Councillor vacancies
The Parish Council meets on the second Monday of each month, at 7.30 pm in the Methodist Chapel on Main Street. You will find the agenda of the next meeting posted on this web site, and also on the village noticeboards (one outside the Post Office on Main Street and one outside the Medical Centre).
Residents are very welcome to come to meetings to express their views and concerns, or just to listen. Time is always set aside for 'public comment' at the beginning of each meeting, so there is no need to stay for the whole session. You may also raise any issue with a Councillor and it will be discussed at the next meeting.
There are three committees: Planning, Policy, Personnel and Finance Committee and the Assets and Environment Committee. These meet when needed, and agendas are posted on this web site and on the village noticeboards. These are open meetings and all residents are very welcome to attend.
