The Annual Parish Meeting will take place on Monday 21 March 2016 at 7.30pm in the Townsend Memorial Hall.
The Annual Parish Meeting is not a council meeting. It is a meeting of the parish or town electors which must take place between 1 March and 1 June.
Electors can contribute to the agenda and in practice these meetings often celebrate local activities and debate current issues in the community. Reports from various community groups within the parish will be presented.
The Chairman of the Parish Council will chair the meeting.
The Annual Meeting of the Parish Council and the Annual Parish Meeting are held on different occasions to avoid confusion.

Around 40 residents joined with Parish Councillors at two large-scale clean-ups on Saturday 5 March in support of the Clean for the Queen campaign.
There were great turnouts at both the village centre and at Hillmorton Locks, with a collection of around 20 sacks of litter, cans, bottles, car parts, old clothing, poles and other debris in Clifton. The residents of The Locks also cleared and swept old litter, car debris, mud and leaves into another 8 sacks, making a big difference to the look of the area.
The clean up took around 2 hours, after which the people who took part were treated to a well-deserved hot drink in The Bull Inn.
Thanks to all the residents (especially the lady who was celebrating her 40th birthday) , their children and dogs who took part.
The Clean for The Queen is a campaign to clear up Britain in time for Her Majesty the Queen’s 90th birthday, which will be officially celebrated in June 2016.
To mark the event Rugby Borough Council has donated 10 litter picking sticks and hi-viz vests to the parish, to enable the Parish Council or its residents to take part in further clean-ups during the year.
