St Andrew's Church
Tarvin War Memorial outside St Andrew's Church
By Ted Lush, Chairman Tarvin Parish Council - 18th June 2015 6:00am
The Annual Parish Meeting took place on Thursday 28 May. Representatives of Tarvin Community Woodland Trust, Tarvinonline, Tarvin Community Centre, Tarvin Educational Trust and Tarvin Parish Council reported on the year ended 31 March 2015. This was followed by a question and answer session. Most of the reports will be printed in a single document which will be delivered to every household in the parish area.
The turnout at the meeting was disappointing — perhaps because it was held at 7.15 pm on a weekday. In 2014 the Parish Council experimented with a Saturday morning meeting at which free tea and coffee were served. This did increase the numbers attending. However, the Parish Council was reminded by Cheshire West and Chester Council that an Annual Parish meeting must not take place before 6.00 pm. Does such legislation seem likely to encourage attendance? How would YOU get more people to come to a meeting which is a very important demonstration of local accountability? Your suggestions would be welcome
