The Parish Council represents and serves the whole community and is responsible for the services it provides.  Following consultation with parishioners (for example via the Parish Plan and the Annual Parish Meeting), it establishes policies for action and decides how money will be raised and spent on behalf of the community.  It is responsible for spending the money raised lawfully and without risk and for achieving the best value for money.

Parish Council meetings are normally held on the 3rd Monday of the month, a full list of dates can be found on the notice boards.

Matters not on the agenda for that evenings' meeting cannot be discussed in detail, but if you wish to raise a non-agenda item, Council may choose to add it as an agenda item for the following meeting, or the Council may opt to respond to your query in writing.
