The Council comprises a maximum of 11 elected or co-opted parishioners. The Parish Clerk is a part-time paid employee, but the Councillors are unpaid, and provide their time voluntarily. The Council manages public facilities on behalf of the village, such as street-lighting, grass-mowing, allotments, play-areas, public seats and footpaths.
The Council’s duties are defined by law and it obtains its funds by setting a yearly precept to be included within the Council Tax collected by South Northamptonshire District Council.
The Parish Council meets in the Village Hall at 8.00 pm on the first Tuesday of every month. The Agenda and Minutes of each meeting are posted on the notice board next to the Post Office and will also be published on this website. The Minutes Archive page will gradually be updated with copies of all the previous Minutes for which there are electronic versions.
Members of the public are welcome to attend meetings, and to participate during the Open Forum period. Any formal enquiries should be addressed to the Parish Clerk.
