You are here: Parish Council
The Parish Council is made up of five councillors and is elected every four years. Elections follow the same pattern as the election of Winchester City Council and the MP for Winchester and Alton. Parish councils are the oldest form of civil government in England (older than county councils and far older than the present district councils); they are the successors of the earlier church parish councils (which now exist as parochial church councils).
Council meetings are held every six weeks. Parishioners are invited to attend and can ask questions or raise concerns at the beginning of the meeting. We are part of The Alresfords ward of Winchester City Council and City Councillors often attend our meetings and provide valuable input. (as does Jackie Porter our County Councillor). There is an annual parish assembly in April of each year which parishioners are encouraged to attend.
