Parish Council Business

The Parish Council’s latest agenda will be updated and shown on this page several days prior to each forthcoming meeting.

Meetings are normally held in the ‘Peter Garnett Room‘ at the Memorial Hall, (Wellington Heath) on the last Tuesday of every other Month at 7.30pm.

(Annual Parish Council meetings are normally held in the larger main hall area)

Members of the Parish community are very welcome and also encouraged to attend these regular meetings  especially the Annual Parish Meeting. At every meeting the Chair will provide the opportunity for the public in attendance to ask questions or raise any issues they may have.


The Next Parish Council Meeting will be held online via ZOOM on Thursday 28 January 2021 commencing at 7.30pm.

This is due to restricted use of the Memorial Hall during the National Covid-19 lockdown.

We hope to resume normal meetings (and be open to the public) from March 30th onwards but we will post more information here as soon as we know more.
