Well, the Parish Council plays a vital role in representing the interests of the local community and by working together can improve the quality of life and local environment for everyone. Individual Parish Councillors cannot make decisions alone but they can bring local issues to the attention of the Council. By engaging in constructive debates and commenting on proposals, Parish Councillors can ensure that the different views and needs of local people are represented when decisions are made by the Council on behalf of the community.

The Parish Council operates using a committee structure which is set out under Meetings of the Council. And, the Council is an employer too! The Clerk works for and with the Council and Committees to action their decisions.
