ANNUAL PARISH MEETING – 14TH MAY 2019

The Annual Parish Meeting will be held on the 14th May, 2019 at the Village Hall at 7.15.  The Annual Parish Meeting is not a Council meeting, but rather is a meeting of local government electors registered for the area for which it is held (i.e. the residents of Linton). It is entirely separate from the Annual Meeting, although held on the same evening. The meeting acts as an annual democratic point of communication enabling the Parish Council to explain what it has been doing over the last year and providing an opportunity for the electors to have their say on anything they consider is important  to the people of the Parish.  The Annual Meeting will follow the APM.

All residents are welcome.

If you are interested in becoming a Councillor please join us at the meeting to have a chat with our current councillors.
