The Annual Parish Meeting for Helmdon normally takes place on the
4th Wednesday in April.
The Annual Parish Meeting.
The open meeting is for the parish and it is not, as some people believe,
a parish council meeting. Traditionally the meeting is organised by
the parish council and, if present, chaired by the parish council
chairman, but no council business is conducted. Rather it is an opportunity
for the community to come together, in a formal setting, and talk
about what they like.
The format for the last few years has been to have a key speaker,
followed by five-minute presentations from some of the many groups
and organisations in the village. The meeting has also traditionally
received reports from the District and County Councillors and the
