About our Village Meeting
Thornham Parva has too few voters for the village to have a Parish Council, so we have a Village Meeting.

Parishes, of which there are 10,000 in England, represent the most local level of Government in England – the third tier of local government. A Parish 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.

Parish or village councils raise funds to support their activities. These funds are raised by adding an extra cost, known as a “precept”, to each householder’s Council Tax bill.

Officers are elected at the May Meeting which is also the AGM. The Meeting has limited powers, but recommendations can be made, particularly to the next tier of local government which is Mid Suffolk District Council.

Meetings are held twice a year, at Thornham Parish Hall, with our AGM held in May. Details of meetings can be found on this webpage and agendas are also delivered through your door before the meeting.
