Parish Council Meetings

At the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic in March 2020, face to face meetings were prohibited. As a result, meetings of the Parish Council were stopped. The Government has now made changes to the requirements allowing Council meetings to be held by video conferencing on line. The Parish Council will be holding ‘virtual’ meetings using the ‘ZOOM’ platform until the restrictions are lifted. 


Agendas and minutes will be posted on our website as normal. There will be public speaking time should any resident wish to speak on items on the agenda. To join the meeting please contact the Clerk at: or phone 01702 207707 before 12pm on the day of the meeting and a link and password will be sent to you.

Due to COVID restrictions and for public safety, the Remembrance Day Service and Parade in Southend Road has sadly had to be cancelled this year.  The Parish Council appreciates the importance of remembering those who served and lost their lives for our country and alternative arrangements have been made.

Laying of Wreaths  There will be no public gathering, blessing or prayers this year.   As we would not wish to turn anyone away, the gate to the War Memorial in Southend Road will be left open from Saturday 7th until Thurs 12th November to enable the community and other organisations to lay their wreaths or crosses between those dates.  

Please observe Government restrictions, social distancing and wear a face mask.



Parish Council and Village Poppy Displays The poppies knitted by the community for the 100th Anniversary have been re-used on a new display which can be seen outside the Parish Hall and the “Tommy” silhouette will be at the War Memorial. There will also be poppies around the memorial Willow Tree in Greensward Lane.

Amos Estates are arranging to display Poppies in Spa Road and Bramerton Community Church will have poppies on their Remembrance Tree outside the church.
