Would you like to have a say in the running of our Village?
WOULD YOU CONSIDER BECOMING
A PARISH COUNCIL MEMBER?
It’s a varied and interesting volunteer job: and makes a real difference in your community …..
There are 3 main areas of local well-being you would directly influence:
Decision Making: Attending meetings to debate local issues, where local money should be spent and what services should be delivered.
Monitoring: Councillors make sure that decisions lead to efficient and effective services – keeping an eye on how well things are going.
Getting involved Locally: Councillors have responsibilities towards their Parishioners and local organisations. This could take as much or as little time that you have available! Planning issues are a key example of this activity.
We really would welcome new members to our team – so if you have ideas and opinions about what goes on locally – and would like to influence it – please consider joining us ….
To qualify councillors simply need to live or work within three miles of the village in which the Parish Council is based and be aged 18 or over.
It’s a vital job: and you will make a real difference!
