Like any other organisation or company, the Council needs to hold an annual meeting to carry out the following:
- Electing a Chairman
- Electing a Vice-Chairman (if the council wants to have one)
- Appointing committees
- Appointing representatives to other bodies (e.g. the Village Hall Committee)
In an election year, the “old Council” retires on the Monday following the day of elections, when the new Council comes into being. The new Council must hold its Annual General Meeting within a fortnight from that Monday.
In any other year, the Council must hold its Annual General Meeting on any day in May.
Note: The next election year is 2023.
