The village is represented by twelve parish councillors elected to serve for up to four years. There is provision for by-election or co-option to the Council should the number fall below twelve members within that period. The last election was held in 2011.
The Council meets on a regular basis in a six weeks cycle, usually on Thursday evenings in the Community Room of the Library building. There is a public forum time at the beginning of Full Council meetings.
Three Committees form part of the cycle and cover Strategy, Amenities and Technical Services. Also a Finance Committee meets on a quarterly basis. All committee meetings are held at the Councils office at 1 Church Walk.
The procedures at all these meetings are governed by Standing Orders and a Code of Conduct for members.
