Mayor of Sefton Attends Parish Council Meeting

Little Altcar is the only Parish Council in Sefton that invites the Mayor of Sefton to attend a normal council meeting. This has always, by tradition, taken place on the first meeting of a new calendar year.

Other civic guests are invited to hear the Chair of Little Altcar Parish Council give an address by way of welcome to the Mayor of Sefton, who then traditionally makes a short speech in reply.

It may appear an example of ‘flummery’ but this is a normal meeting and open to all to attend, there is always an opportunity in the ‘public half-hour’ to call elected members to account and put matters before them for further discussion. It is the very essence of local democracy in action and takes place here within the community. The meeting will commence at 7.00pm in Formby Library
