TO ALL ELECTORS OF MUCH MARCLE PARISH

You are invited to take part in the

ANNUAL PARISH MEETING  to be held at THE MEMORIAL HALL, MUCH MARCLE on WEDNESDAY 4TH MAY 2022 at 7.30pm

Under the Chairmanship of The Parish Council Chairman, Councillor Mike Barber-Starkey.

Come along and hear what your Parish Council, local organisations and groups have achieved in your Parish over the past year. This is your opportunity to ask questions and take an active interest in what’s happening in your Parish.

What is an Annual Parish Meeting?

There can be, and often is, confusion between the Annual Parish Meeting and the Annual Parish Council Meeting. All Town and Parish Councils throughout England are required by law to hold an Annual Parish Meeting, which must take place between 1 March and 1 June (inclusive). Meetings should not commence before 6 pm.

What is the purpose of the Annual Parish Meeting?

The purpose of the meeting is to give the Parish Council, and other local organisations an opportunity to let local residents know what they have been doing over the past year. The meeting is also an opportunity for electors to have a say on anything they consider valuable to the people of the Parish.

What else happens at the meeting?

The meeting can also be an opportunity for local groups, clubs, societies and other voluntary and statutory organisations to provide an exhibition and/or have representatives from the group address those present at the meeting about the work they do and what they are involved in.

Who can attend the meeting?

The Annual Parish Meeting is for all electors of the Parish. It is not a meeting of the Parish Council. Anyone is welcome to attend the meeting however, only registered electors of the parish may speak and vote during the meeting.

Will I be able to ask questions and make suggestions?

Any registered elector may ask a question of the Council which will usually be answered by the Chair, the Clerk or the Council, or a designated Councillor. An elector may also make a suggestion and comment on anything pertinent to the residents of the Parish. This will be welcomed and is the whole purpose of the meeting.

Who will chair the meeting?

The Chairman of the Council will chair the meeting. The Wythall Annual Parish Meeting is usually convened by the Chairman of the Council however, the meeting can also be convened by any two Parish Councillors, a Councillor representing the Parish on the District Council, or any six local electors of the Parish.

Will Parish Councillors be at the meeting?

All Parish Councillors will be invited to attend and Committee Chairs will also present the updates on current projects the committees are driving forward. Councillors will also have an opportunity to raise questions and make comments if they wish. However, the purpose of the meeting is to enable the electors to find out what is going on in their parish and to have their say.
