Laying of Flowers and Donations

At the moment it is very difficult for members of the public to lay flowers at the previously approved SMBC sites.  We wish to discourage people from doing so.  Could we suggest that people make donations to their charity of choice if they so wish.  Meriden Parish Council does understand the enormous financial pressures that the current situation is placing on people and that nobody should feel obliged to donate.   (Buckingham Palace have confirmed this approach is preferred).

Books of Condolence

For the duration of the current emergency Meriden Parish Council  has been given advice that it is not appropriate to open physical books of condolence.  The only safe option is to use the online books of condolence where these are available.

An online book of condolence will be available on Buckingham Palace’s website: www.royal.uk

When restrictions are lifted and it is safe to do so, there will be opportunities to come together to reflect and mourn.

Your Parish Council

Meriden Parish Council was created in Statute in 1894.  The Rural District Council came into existence on 1st January 1895 in accordance with the Local Government Act of 1894 and comprised 17 parishes including Meriden.  Parish Councils are the first level of democracy with a range of powers.  They help with decisions on local services and Council policies.

Councillors are not paid and have to abide by a local government code of conduct. They must declare any financial interests in the parish – such as employment, businesses and land ownership. Councillors must also declare a personal or prejudicial interest in any matter being discussed at a parish council meeting.
