Annual Town Meeting 

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.

The meeting in 2021 took place remotely on the 17th March 2021 at 7pm and the minutes will be uploaded here shortly.
