Time to have your say

Annual Parish meeting
If you live within the parish of Old Buckenham then you have probably read the previous post with interest. Perhaps you are pleased with what your parish council is doing or maybe there are things where you think they could be doing better.
Each year the parish council is required to have what is known, not surprisingly, as the Annual Parish Meeting. This is an open meeting when all parishioners have the opportunity to ask questions directly to the council members. It is an event that you should not miss if you have strong feelings, good or bad, about how your elected councillors are doing.
It is no good just moaning over a pint at the pub or just telling your cat or dog what a wonderful job the council have done over the last twelve months.
Part of the meeting is also the opportunity to hear short reports on what various village organisations have been up to. Has the community car service been as busy as ever? Are there lots of bookings at the village hall? What about the Village Environment and Recycling Group? And has the village newsletter been attracting enough advertising?
Get along to the Annual Parish Meeting on Wednesday 21 March in the Village Hall and have your say. If there is something else in your diary for that evening then there is plenty of time to rearrange it.
See you there.
