Parish Council AGM and Annual Electors' Meeting tonight

Stirchley & Brookside Parish Council's Annual General Meeting (AGM) is tonight at 7:30pm, preceded by the Annual Electors' Meeting at 6:45pm.

The Electors' Meeting is an opportunity for any elector to come along and ask questions of the parish council or to raise anything that they consider to be of importance or interest to the parish. The meeting is convened by the parish council and the chair of the parish council (or deputy) chairs the meeting but it is not a parish council meeting, it is a meeting of the parish itself.

The AGM is the biggest parish council meeting of the year, where the chair and deputy chair of the parish council are elected, members are voted onto the council's various committees and appointments to outside bodies are made. This year's AGM also includes discussion of the lease for the council's current office, the lease for the council's new offices in the new school, a partnership agreement with community organisers and my resolution to lobby the borough council to put a zebra crossing near Bridgwood to make the crossing point safer for kids walking to Lakeside.
