April 2nd is the first Parish Council meeting to be held online and is available for members of the public to join via computer, tablet or phone.
During the current COVID-19 pandemic Parish Council and Committee meetings will be held via online video conferencing using Zoom (website: zoom.us). Members of the public will be able to watch and listen via a link provided along with the agenda. The agendas continue to be placed in advance on noticeboards and on the Meetings Diary page of this website.
To attend the meeting check the Agenda and use the web link or phone number provided to join. There will be a separate link for each meeting.
The first time you use the link it may take a few minutes to install Zoom. Follow instructions on the screen. If using tablet or smart phone you may need to download an app so allow extra time. There is no need to set up a Zoom account yourself.
Members of the public will be able to see and hear Councillors on the screen, or hear on the telephone. But members of the public will be muted with the video turned off, and so will not appear on the screen or be heard. The exception will be if they are putting a question or are invited to speak by the Chair. If you have submitted a question and wish to speak at the meeting, please inform the Chair and Clerk if you would prefer to appear on video or to be audio only.
The meetings will be recorded as usual.
We have tested meeting in this way and are confident it can provide a good experience while we are unable to meet in person, but we would like to hear your feedback on the experience. Please email the Chair of the Communications Committee Lorna Berrett (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any comments or suggestions.
