2 Vacancies for the role of Councillor

Due to the resignations of Calvert McGibbon and Tina Rogers as Parish Councillors, there are two now  vacancies in the Parish Council.

Become a Parish or Town Councillor:

The best way to find out what it’s like to be a Parish or Town Councillor is to talk to someone who’s doing it now.  Council meetings are open to the public and you can go along to a Parish Council meeting, speak to one of the Councillors and find out what they think of the job they do.

By becoming a Parish or Town Councillor you become someone your community will look to for help, guidance and support as a community leader with the power to influence decisions for the benefit of the people you serve.
