The parish council is re-elected every three years, the next
election date being May 2018. In practice there has never
been a surplus of candidates to prompt an election, and so
the council is composed of residents who have 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.
Parish council meetings are usually held on the third
Monday of every second month in the village hall,
starting at 20.00.
All parishioners are entitled to attend the meetings
and the annual parish assembly.
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.
