An Annual Parish Meeting is different.
Before the Annual General Meeting of the Parish Council is the Parish Meeting which is different. Here the Parish Council reports to its electorate on its activities over the last year. There are usually reports from County and District Councillors and perhaps from any voluntary or local community group. It is also an opportunity for parishioners to question people and organisations on any issues relating to the village. As the Annual Parish Meeting is not a parish council meeting, it is not conducted in the same way or governed by the same rules as a parish council meeting. Members of the public are permitted to make statements on relevant parish matters during the meeting. Any resolutions passed do not bind the Parish Council.
