The Parish Meeting
The Annual Parish Meeting is a meeting of the Parish of Cranage, not of the Parish Council.
The Open Forum is an opportunity for residents to raise issues they feel are important to the town.
The Parish Meeting must be held between April 1st and June 1st and is called by the Chairman. The meeting is chaired by the Chairman with the Parish Clerk taking the minutes but Councillors have no more standing than other electors of Cranage.
The Parish Meeting affords Community Groups the opportunity to do short presentations to the town on what they have done in the past year and what they will be working on over the next year.
This could be:
Suggesting ideas for the Parish Council to investigate
Raising concerns about planned activities in the town
Asking questions to the Parish Council
Raising general issues affecting the village
