Our Parish Meeting is the smallest unit of democracy in the UK.
Because we have such a small electorate, just about 80, we have no need to elect Parish Councillors. We are all Parish Councillors. We elect a Chairman and a Clerk.
We have no real power but we can, through the District Council, raise a small rate to spend on things in our village. Our comments on planning proposals must be considered but not necessarily heeded.
We meet twice a year and rely on residents' interest. Special meetings can be called, rarely, but usually to discuss planning proposals.
Our village sign was designed by Linda Lockhart and John Turrell. It was made locally and stands at the centre of the village.
