Monday 23rd April 6.45pm for 7.00pm in the Neville Hall

Once a year, the Parish hold their Annual Parish Meeting, which is organised by the Parish Council but is not a Parish Council meeting. Local organisations are invited to give a short 5-minute presentation on local matters and issues affecting them and the community. There is then an opportunity for a short Q and A session followed by the chance to mingle.

Last year presentations were given by the School, the Village Charities and by the Parish Council, all of whom provide an update every year. They were joined by RBWM Planning Department who gave a detailed insight to the area of planning applications - so critical to our local community. They were joined by a colleague who presented on Public Rights of Way, again important to us in our rural environment. Thames Valley Police shared with us updates on all local matters related to the Police. The Cricket Club gave a short presentation reminding us of its 170-year-old history and the strong recent links with the Parish Fete, and of course the facility to hold celebratory events in the club house. The formal presentations concluded with a short update from the Shurlock Inn who were about to unveil their newly refurbished offering.

It is intended that the speakers each year will rotate to provide clubs, societies and organisations around the village an opportunity to explain what they do in the community and increase support.

This year, including the organisations who present annually, the following have been invited to attend and update the community on their local plans.

  • The Neville Hall
  • The Parish Fete
  • The Village Show
  • The Silver Band
  • St Lawrence CafĂ©

Additional speakers may be added to this list- please see Village Notice Boards and Social Media for a final agenda nearer the time.

The event starts at 7pm with drinks and nibbles from 6.45pm. Please do come along and learn more about issues affecting and plans for the village.
