Have your say
We bought them for £1 each! Now, what are we going to do with them? Contact a parish councillor or the clerk with your ideas about how to use these Red Telephone Boxes. You can also come to the next Parish Council Meeting on –
Monday, 11 July, 7pm at the Village Hall.
Would you like your Parish Council (using your taxes) to spend £2,000 – £3,500 for a defibrillator in one or both of the telephone boxes? Would you like to fund raise for this equipment?
The Parish Meeting is also known as the Annual Meeting of the Electors, chaired by the Chairman of the Parish Council. The Police usually attend and give a short report, and the Parish Council Chairman will deliver his/her annual report.
Any member of the community is welcome to come and have their say.
Parish Groups are invited to give a report on their activities (under 3 minutes please). If an organisation sends its report to the Clerk, it will be included in the Minutes of the meeting and it can be longer.
The Parish Meeting is followed by the Annual Meeting of the Parish Council and then an Ordinary Meeting of the Parish Council.
