Annual Parish Meeting

PARISHIONERS OF WALSHAM LE WILLOWS

Every year between March 1st and June 1st inclusive the Parish Council is required to organise an Annual Parish Meeting.  This is not a Parish Council meeting although the Chair of the Parish Council will call the meeting and Chair it if present.

There is no prescribed format but it can include, for example, a presentation of the Parish Council’s annual report, discussions of ideas for future action, public comment and questions on Council performance or a celebration of village organisations.

Since I took over as Clerk, and I think for some years prior to my tenure, village organisations have been invited to submit a report and attend to present it.

The Parish Council is thinking about how the format of the meeting could be changed to maybe make it more useful to parishioners as a village meeting. And also maybe a bit more fun!

If you  have an idea of how you would like to use this meeting for the good of the village, please contact me before the end of March so that I have some time to collate and gather any more information before reporting back to Council on 14th April.
