|September||The draft budget for the next financial year is reviewed.|
If any urgent business occurs outside this timetable, the Parish Council can also convene an extraordinary meeting.
An agenda has, by law, to be published three days before the date of a parish council meeting. Agendas and Minutes of meetings are published on the Village Notice Board, and also on the website.
