The Parish Council should consist of five councillors, this is the minimum for even the smallest of villages, currently we have only three and so have two vacancies. We would welcome any interest from residents or those who work in the parish. The workload is not that onerous, the interest level high and the satisfaction to be gained by helping your village priceless.
The Parish Council is important and though we only have 10 meetings a year we are often the only way in which the views of our residents can be expressed to the decision makers who are obliged to at least listen to us. Every year we set and then collect Council Tax from our residents and spend it on village maintenance, our legal obligations and various improving projects – so the position has direct effect on your fellow residents.
If you are interested then either chat to any of the councillors, email us or come along to a meeting to see what it is we do. Full training and support is provided.
