Who can join the parish council?

The parish council is re-elected every three years, the next election date being May 2022.
Any parishioner may stand for election to the parish council or, in the event of an uncontested vacancy, apply to serve.
In practice there has never been a surplus of candidates to prompt an election, and so the council is composed of residents who have continuously volunteered to serve.
When a vacancy occurs between elections the existing councillors choose a replacement.
Anyone interested in serving on the parish council should contact the clerk.

When and where does the parish council meet?

Following a recent change, parish council meetings are now held on the third Thursday of every second month in the village hall, starting at 20.00 (Jan, Mar, May etc).
All parishioners are entitled to attend the meetings and the annual parish assembly which is held each May.
Any parishioner who is concerned about a local issue may ask any councillor or the parish clerk for the matter to be raised at a council meeting.
The parish council maintains its own website detailing policies, procedures, codes of practice and the current year's budget.
