The Annual Town Meeting legally must take place between 1st March and 1st June each year and in Sandwich it usually takes place towards the end of March.
The Annual Town Meeting is not the Annual Meeting of the Town Council (at which Mayor Making takes place) and it is not a Council meeting, however, in a Town where there is a parish/town council the Mayor will convene the Annual Town Meeting and the town council should cover any associated costs.
The purpose of the Annual Town Meeting is to provide a democratic point of communication with which to discuss town matters.
Information relating to this meeting will be uploaded here. However in 2020 the meeting did not take place due to Covid 19. The next meeting is planned for 17th March 2021 at 7pm and related documents will be uploaded nearer the time.
