The Parish Council meets 6 times a year with an Annual Assembly in April. Anyone can attend our meetings which are all held at Sandon Village Hall. Although we decide key matters between us we each have particular areas of focus which are below. All the Councillors are elected volunteers. We are supported by our Clerk and Financial Officer.
