Vacancies for Councillors

The Parish Council has two vacancies at the present time, both of which can be filled by co-option.

If you would like more information on the work of a Councillor, please contact the Clerk or one of the current Councillors.  Alternatively, please look at this leaflet which was prepared as information for the 2015 elections.

It’s difficult for the Council to go forward without a full complement of Councillors – there must be someone out there with a little time to spare.  If you’re interested, please contact either the Clerk or one of the existing Councillors – alternatively come along to a parish council meeting, you will be surprised at the variety of issues the Council deals with!

Your Community Needs YOU!

Wanted – 3 Parish Councillors!!

Following the uncontested election in May, the Council is running at the moment with only 4 of the seven seats filled.  Three more Councillors are urgently needed and the Parish Council is looking to co-opt at the meeting on Tuesday 8 September.   Interested??  Speak to one of the current Councillors or the Clerk, or see the leaflet which was prepared for this year’s elections and which will give you more information.  Then write to the Clerk (email is fine) with the following information by Tuesday 3 November 2015:

  • contact details
  • confirmation of fulfilling the criteria (see leaflet referred to above)
  • reasons for wishing to join the Council

These are interesting and challenging times for local government – be a part of it!!
