Avon Dassett Annual Parish Meeting will take place on Wednesday 5th May at 7pm. The Annual Parish Meeting is a legacy from the Middle Ages, when Local Councils did not exist, and all local decision making was carried out by meetings of the whole community, taking place in the church vestry.
The Annual Parish Meeting is open to all electors, who have the right not only to attend but also to speak on any matter of local interest. This is in contrast to a Council meeting, where electors who are not Councillors have no automatic right to speak (though the parish council does have a set time when electors can raise matters of concern to them).
There will also be a regular parish council meeting and the parish council AGM taking place via Zoom.
