Parish Council AGM - Annual Parish & Annual Council Meeting

Due to Covid19 primary legislation and govt regulations, we are now presented with a very specific and short "window" where we can hold the AGM. To this end, the meeting will now take place on Thursday 20th May 2021 at 7pm. Due to the regulations, we have to hold this meeting face to face for Council members. The meeting will have to be via remote methods for members of the public. We are hoping that we can find a venue with capacity to invite some members of the public once a Covid secure Risk Assessment has been carried out. As soon as we have more information, we will be able to confirm the arrangements.
