Clerk's Toolkit: Meetings & Agendas

Tuesday 12th December 2017

Wolston Baptist Church (Parish Council Office), 2 Main Street, Wolston, CV8 3HJ

9.30am – 12 noon

Registration from 9am

12 bite-sized sessions covering all the basics of the clerk’s role

This session will concentrate on:

  • Agendas: meeting with the chairman, standard items, format, notices, where to publish & for how long
  • Admission to meetings, confidential items, exclusion of public, recording of meetings
  • Standards to expect in meetings including Code of Conduct, procedure when declaring interests/seeking dispensation
  • Minute-taking, format, page numbering, powers recorded, initialled each page, signed
Over 12 sessions we intend to give a complete grounding in the work of a parish clerk.  Each of the sessions are stand-alone but also build on each other and clerks can attend as many or as few as required.

This session will accrue 1 CPD point

The sessions will be led by Gill Lungley 

Gill holds a BA (Hons) in Business Studies, and started working for parish councils in 1991 and gaining the Cert. HE Local Policy Studies from Cheltenham and Gloucester in 1995 and a BTec in similar subject from Worcester College.  Then, because Gill loves the subject and wanted to share it with a wider audience she took the PTLLS qualification (Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector) in 2009.

Gill has worked for one PC for 11 years, then took a break of 3 years before returning to clerking and have now worked for another 6 councils ranging in size from electorates of more than 5,000 to less than 400.

She has represented Worcestershire as county representative at SLCC’s NEC and is a member of the Institute of Local Council Management, which means that she keeps up to date with personal training and CPD.  Currently Gill works part-time for two parish councils as well as delivering CALC training.


£25.00 per delegate for Member Clerks                    
£50.00 per delegate for non-member Clerks
