The Parish Meeting

The Parish Meeting


The Annual Parish Meeting is a meeting of the Parish of Hulme Walfield and Somerford Booths, not of the Parish Council.

The Open Forum is an opportunity for residents to raise issues they feel are important to the town.

The Parish Meeting must be held between April 1st and June 1st and is called by the Chairman. The meeting is chaired by the Chairman with the Parish Clerk taking the minutes but Councillors have no more standing than other electors of Hulme Walfield and Somerford Booths.

The Parish Meeting affords Community Groups the opportunity to do short presentations to the town on what they have done in the past year and what they will be working on over the next year.

This could be:

• Suggesting ideas for the Parish Council to investigate
• Raising concerns about planned activities in the town
• Asking questions to the Parish Council
• Raising general issues affecting the village
