Until 2020 IPC held monthly meetings throughout the year (except in August and December) and then voted for meetings to be held bi-monthly.
The October 2019 meeting was cancelled.
Under normal circumstances, meetings are held in the Village Hall during the winter months and then in the Cricket Pavilion during the summer months.
In 2020 due to the coronavirus epidemic only the January meeting was held as a group – since then all of the meetings were held online via Zoom (a virtual meeting) with the link advertised for all council members and non-council members to join and participate. This arrangement continued until May 2021 when the authorities advised the Parish Council that it was now safe to resume face to face meetings – with specific safeguards in place.
The May 2021 APM and AGM meetings were held in person in the village hall with Covid precautionary measures in place.
Should there be a return to a future Zoom meeting the details are:- https://durhamuniversity.zoom.us/j/96569405009?pwd=ZEloRGhLV2xSYkNsandsS1dDTCs0Zz09
