The APM is an opportunity for parishioners to have their say on the activities of the parish council and make suggestions of future projects that could be undertaken. There will be an online presentation of our activities following which parishioners will be invited to give their comments, so please do come along. However if you are unable to attend your comments are most welcome. Please email them to clerk@northluffenham.org.uk.

For a variety of reasons not everybody will be able to join in the meeting and a Newsletter is being circulated summarising the activities of the Parish Council over the past year: please click to download
