Parish Council meetings take place in the Community and Sports Hall, Mary Day Close, starting at 7.30 pm (unless otherwise advertised). The meetings are open to the public and press, and there is a section of the meeting where residents are invited to raise questions or make comment. Although there is no requirement of the Council to be able to answer any questions immediatley, Councillors will take account of the balance of views expressed by the residents when they are deliberating on matters during the remainder of the meeting. For a more complete understanding of how council meetings are conducted, please read the Council's Standing Orders
