‘EqualiTeas’ events

On behalf of Sue Marston, Skills Service Delivery Manager Telford & Wrekin Borough Council 

The Skills Delivery Team [T&WC] have organised a series of ‘EqualiTeas’ events as part of the UK wide celebration marking 90 years since the Representation of the People Act 1928.  As 2018 also coincides with 100 years since some women gained the vote, this will also be a part of our events.

There will be five events in local communities and one larger event taking place at the Wakes:

  • Brookside Central (Wednesday 20 June) 9:30am – 11:30am
  • Dawley Town Hall (Friday 22 June) 9:30am – 11:30am
  • Arleston Community Centre (Monday 25 June) 9:30am – 11:30am
  • Park Lane Centre (Wednesday 27 June) 9:30am – 11:30am
  • Donnington Community Hub (Wednesday 27 June) 12:30pm – 2:30pm
  • The Wakes, Oakengates (Saturday 30 June) 10am – 2pm

The five smaller-scale events will involve art and craft activities (relevant to EqualiTeas), health and wellbeing, information on voter registration, information on Local Policing and Safer Neighbourhood Teams and a vintage tea party.  We will also have the use of a ballot box from the Elections Office and visitors will be encouraged to take part in a ‘mock ballot’ (not relating to mainstream politics).  From a Skills Delivery perspective, we will be promoting Learn Telford courses and all Job Box services.

The larger event at The Wakes will consist of a range of activities including arts and craft (relevant to EqualiTeas and Vote 100), information on courses/learning around voting and the UK Parliament, information on ‘Your Vote Matters’ and voter registration, a display on the Youth Parliament staffed by local representatives, free tea and refreshments, the library service, information on Local Policing and Safer Neighbourhood Teams, food and displays from different faith communities & community groups as well as activities relating to health and wellbeing.  The My Options Roving Reporters will also be attending to interview people who attend and we are hoping to encourage as many visitors as possible to take an ‘#IVote’ selfie and upload it to social media.  There will be a free entrance draw and Blists Hill Museum have kindly donated free family tickets as a contribution to this.

The event will be well-publicised and we are hoping to reach as many people as possible, especially those who may not ordinarily be engaged in voting.

Further details on EqualiTeas is available on the UK Parliament website and also on the designated website www.equaliteas.org.uk

Annual Parish Meeting

Notice is hereby given that the Annual Parish meeting will be held on Thursday 19th April at 8:00 p.m. at Wrockwardine Parish Hall.

A copy of the agenda can be found here: https://goo.gl/rcGhkA

The Annual Parish or Town Meeting is not a Parish Council meeting. It is a meeting of the parish or town electors and could involve local organisations such as the Women’s Institute and the drama group. Strictly speaking electors can set the agenda, and in practice these meetings often celebrate local activities and debate current issues in the community. The chairman of the Parish Council calls the Annual Parish or Town Meeting and, if present, will chair it. It is best practice to hold the Annual Meeting of the Council and the Annual Parish Meeting on different occasions to avoid confusion.  [The Good Councillors Guide]

PARISH MEETING

 A parish meeting, in England, is a meeting to which all the electors in a civil parish are entitled to attend. In some cases, where a parish or group of parishes has fewer than 200 electors, the parish meeting can take on the role of the parish council itself, with statutory powers, and electing a chairman and clerk to act on the meeting’s behalf.

In England, the annual parish meeting of a parish with a parish council must take place between 1 March and 1 June, both dates inclusive, and must take place no earlier than 6pm.

Parish meetings are a form of direct democracy, which is uncommon in the United Kingdom, which primarily uses representative democracy.

Section 39(2) of the Local Government Finance Act 1972 provides that a parish meeting is a precepting authority. This means that where there is no parish council the parish meeting must meets its own expenses, usually by precepting on the district council.

A parish meeting may only precept for expenditure relating to specific functions, powers and rights which have been conferred on it by legislation.

Parish meetings do not have the power to appoint staff.
