All Parish and Town Councils throughout England are required by law to hold an Annual Parish Meeting, which must take place between 1st March and the 1st June (inclusive).
Purpose of the Annual Parish Meeting
The purpose of the meeting is so that the Parish Council can explain what it has been doing over the last year and it enables the electors to have their say on anything they consider is important to the people of the Parish.
Who can attend the meeting?
Whilst the meeting is facilitated by the Parish Council, The Annual Parish Meeting is a meeting of all the local government electors for the Parish.
It is NOT a Meeting of the Parish Council.
Anyone may attend but only registered electors of Bradfield Parish may speak and vote.
Any registered elector may ask questions of the Council, which where possible, will usually be answered by the Chairperson, the Clerk to the Council, or a designated Councillor.
An elector may also make suggestions and comment on anything pertinent to the people of Bradfield. This will be welcomed and is the whole purpose of the meeting.
Please advise the Clerk to the Council if there is anything you would like to be considered for inclusion on the agenda for the next meeting which will be held in May 2018
What else happens at the meeting?
In recent years we have invited local clubs, societies and other voluntary and statutory organisations to provide a report and/or a representative to speak about the work of their group
