9 Brindle Parish Council Website

Welcome

It gives me great pleasure to introduce the Brindle Parish Council website.

The aim of the site is to keep parishioners informed of the Council's activities and proceedings. Also, the site provides an archive of minutes and other Parish Council documents. We will undertake to keep the site up to date and relevant.

The Parish Council Meetings are held about every 6 weeks at 7-30pm on a Monday at various venues around the parish

Members of the public can attend so please come along to see what we do for the parish.

We also want to hear your views on the site, the good, the bad, the missing, the irrelevant. Please pass your views to the Webmaster or any Parish Councillor.

Darren Cranshaw

Chairman.
