Meetings are normally held on a Monday, bimonthly in the Community Centre commencing at 7.30pm. The meeting notices are posted on the noticeboard at the end of Station Hill, adjacent to the Swan Public House.

Meetings are open to the public - anyone is welcome to attend and to raise questions during question time at the beginning of the meeting.
