Annual Meeting of Electors 28 April 2022

The first face to face “Annual Meeting of Electors” for electors of the Civil Parish of Tangmere since 2019 will be held at 7pm on Thursday 28 April 2022 in the Youth Hall at Tangmere Village Centre.

The Annual Meeting of Electors also known as the Parish Meeting is a quirky and potentially powerful bit of local democracy. The meeting is not a meeting of the Parish Council – but, by law, it must be chaired by the Chairman of the Parish Council if that person is present (and by convention the Parish Clerk normally takes the minutes) however, anyone on the electoral role for Tangmere may attend and every elector present has the same status.  Electors can ask any question relevant to the residents of the village – and the Chairman and Clerk will do their best to answer on the night.

The meeting should be held every year. The last face to face meeting took place in 2019, there was no meeting in 2020 and the 2021 took place remotely using video conferencing.

Census Day – Sunday 21 March 2021

The census is coming. By taking part, you can help to inform decisions on services that shape your community, such as schools, doctors’ surgeries and bike lanes.

It’s important you fill in your census questionnaire because the information you share affects the life of every single person living in England and Wales.

Because these things matter to us all, everyone needs to complete the census. Do not worry, your information is protected by law. That means government officials dealing with payments or services you receive cannot see it.

Census Day is Sunday 21 March. You can fill yours in online as soon as you get your access code in the post. If your household circumstances change on Census Day, you can let The Office for National Statistics (ONS) know.

If you need help, you can visit www.census.gov.uk where there’s a wide range of support services available.

Covid-19 Vaccination Centre

Tangmere Village Centre will open as Covid-19 Vaccination Centre from Thursday 14 Jan 2021.
To play our part in the battle against the pandemic, Tangmere Parish Council has helped the NHS search and find a suitable building in the Tangmere Village Centre.
The vaccination will be staffed and run by the NHS and their guidance on the vaccination programme can be found here:
Just to stress their point – “The NHS is working hard to get the vaccine to everyone who is eligible as quickly as possible. Please do not contact your GP or other NHS service to ask for the vaccine; you will be invited to receive it when it is your turn”.
Please do not contact the parish council about the vaccine – but our team will be available and working remotely to deal with normal parish council business.

Village Centre Reopens
