PARISH COUNCIL MEETINGS

Because of the current Government restrictions on people leaving their homes, our normal Parish Council meetings are suspended until further notice.

However, the Government has made temporary Regulations, coming into force on 4 April 2020, to allow Parish Councils to meet via phone-conferencing or video-conferencing (which were previously illegal for councils). Bamford with Thornhill Parish Council will use this new flexibility if sufficient need arises to do so, and the agenda for any such meeting will be published on this website and on local noticeboards.
