What we do
The Parish Council is the tier of Local Government closest to the people and it is a non-political body. It is at the 'grass roots' and as such is in the best position to understand and represent the views of the local community. All Councillors are volunteers and receive no renumeration for their tenure.
The Parish Council comprises 8 members, Parish Council meetings are now usually held on the second Tuesday of each month, in the Liddell Hall, in order to discuss issues affecting the parish and its residents. An Open Forum session is always included to allow questions, comments and contributions from the general public. Please note that any correspondence received by the Clerk, unless stipulated private and confidential, may be disseminated to all serving Parish Councillors and the contents, including the author's name, may be discussed openly in a public meeting.
An Annual Parish Meeting is held in May, to which all residents are welcome to attend to hear reports from the Council.
Parish Council elections are held every four years, and were held in 2016. Any vacancies that arise between elections are filled either by holding a by-election or by co-option.
The Parish Council appoints a Clerk, a Litter Warden and a Tree Warden. Committees of the Council are appointed on an annual basis.
The Parish Council's Standing Orders, Financial Regulations, Register of Interests, Asset Register and all other Policies and Procedures can be found on the Policies page of the website.
