known as the 'Proper Officer', supports the Parish Council
in its duties. The Parish Clerk is usually the main point
of contact for both parishioners and for organisations outside

per annum and at each of these meetings parishioners and
members of the public are given the opportunity to raise
any matters with the Council. In May of each year the Parish
Council holds the Annual Parish Council Meeting at which
the Chairman and Vice Chairman are elected. The Council
does not have any sub-committees.
The parish holds an Annual Parish Meeting,
usually in May, at which the Council reports on the past
year, and at which parishioners may raise any matters of
concern or interest to them. In addition, ad hoc Parish
Meetings may be held to address specific issues.
Parish Council operates on a non-party political basis with
each Councillor voting solely according to his conscience.
No Councillor receives any payment. The Parish Council has
adopted both the National Code of Conduct and the Freedom
of Information Act.
