Parish Council meetings
The Parish Council usually meets on the first Thursday of every month. The usual meeting venue is The Pavilion King George V Playing Field (KGV) Drayton High Road Drayton Norwich NR8 6AW although under current Coronovirus restrictions main Council meetings will take place in the Village Hall.
Members of the public are invited to attend any Full Council or Committee meeting, and there is space in every meeting to address the Council during Public Speaking on any item on the agenda. The agenda's are published both on the website and also on the village noticeboards.
The Council currently has vacancies, if you have an interest in joining the Council attending a meeting is a good way to learn about the work the Council is currently engaged in.
If you would like the Council to discuss any issue in particular if you contact the Clerk then it can be put onto the agenda for the next available meeting if suitable.
The Clerk can be contacted at the Council offices on King George V Playingfield at the rear of the pavilion.
