About our Village Meeting
Thornham Magna has too few voters for the village to have a Parish Council, so we have a Village Meeting. A Meeting is the very bottom rung of the local government system, but it is uniquely satisfying to participate in as every voter in the village is a member and can speak and vote.
The Meeting has limited powers, but recommendations can be made, particularly to the next tier of local government which is Mid Suffolk District Council. We are a precepting body. Officers are elected at the May Meeting which is also the AGM.
Meetings are held three times a year, at Thornham Parish Hall, IP23 8HB usually at 7.30pm on a Tuesday.
