In March 2018 the Town Council began recording its public meetings.

This is all in the interests of making the council more transparent.

If you are present at a council meeting, and do not want to be recorded, you will have to leave the meeting.

If you stay, it will be assumed you have no objection to anything you say, or any noise you make, being recorded for the public record.

You can access the recordings below. Just click the Play arrowhead on the left to hear them.

You may need to turn up your volume at certain points.
