The Parish Council usually meets at 7:00pm on the first Monday of each month in the Community Room adjoining the school. Notice of the meetings appears on the Parish Council notice board outside the school, together with the minutes of the previous meeting and other relevant information. The first 15 minutes of each meeting are allocated to the public to allow them to raise any matters of concern. In addition to the monthly meetings there is the Annual Parish Assembly which takes place in April.
The Parish Council is responsible for many aspects of village life, including the provision of recreation facilities, reporting on the state of highways, footpaths and bridleways, commenting on planning applications and supporting parish initiatives, sometimes with grants.
