Bawtry Town Council is shortly to convene an initial Community Forum Meeting on the 3rd April – full details below:

Inaugural Meeting of the Bawtry Community Forum at the Crown Hotel on Monday 3rd April 2017 at 7 pm.

Bawtry Councillors want to try to make the Town Council more representative of, and responsive to, its electorate. The public get to select councillors at election time, and are always able to attend Council meetings – but few chose to do so. Our meeting minutes are available for inspection online ( and at the Library – but they’re not the best way of finding out what is going on.

We have therefore decided to create a Community Forum, which will consist of the Town Council, individual residents and any existing community groups or associations that wish to participate. At the Forum, Councillors and the Clerk will explain how the Council works, what it can do, and what it cannot do. We hope the public will tell us what we should do.

We will explain the rules that govern our activities, how we spend your money, and what our existing policies and priorities are. We will invite the public to question us, to challenge us, and to hold us to account.

We will organise the content of this first meeting of the Community Forum – but its future will be shaped by those who attend.

If you want to influence the future of Bawtry, you should attend this meeting.

Refreshments will be available, and the meeting will close by 9 pm.
