Who may attend?
Anyone may attend but only registered electors may ask questions. An elector may also make suggestions and comment on anything pertinent to the people of Nether Heyford – this will be welcomed and it is the whole purpose of the meeting.

Who will chair the meeting?
Normally the Chairperson of the Parish Council will chair the meeting otherwise the meeting will elect a Chairperson from amongst those electors present.

Will parish Councillors be there?
Usually they do attend and will speak as necessary but the purpose of the meeting is to enable the electors to have their say. Councillors will listen and as electors themselves, also have the opportunity to raise questions and make comments if they wish.

Can I suggest agenda items?
Yes, just get them to the Clerk of the Parish Council or come along to the meeting and raise the item then.

Are minutes taken?
Yes – they are published on this website and a summary is printed in the monthly village newspaper The Prattler. They are also displayed on the 2 village notice boards.

Annual Parish Meeting

All Parish Councils in England are required by law to hold an Annual Parish Meeting between 1st March and 30th June each year. The meeting allows the Council and local community organisations to explain what they have been doing over the last year and electors can have their say on anything which they consider is important to the people of the parish.

Streetlights

All the streetlights in the village belong to the Parish Council so if any are faulty please contact us.

The County Council's Highways Department will only deal with problems that have been reported on Northamptonshire County Council Fix My Street website. The Clerk will report issues that the Parish Council are made aware of, We encourage residents to use the Fix My Street website service to report issues themselves as there will then be no time lag and first-hand reports are almost always better than 2nd or 3rd hand reports. It is easy to use; you can have your own account and can check up on any issues you have reported.

Defibrillators

Nether Heyford has two emergency defibrillators which you may be directed to after dialing 999 in an emergency situation.

Locations:

#1 - One Stop Shop (Outside on the side wall)

#2 - Playing Fields (Bowls club car park)

During the emergency call you will be given a code to access the cabinet and the defibrillator.

The defibrillators give voice instructions once activated.
