Local District and Parish Elections – 3rd May

All Parish Councillor positions will be up for election this year on 3rd May and both parish and district council elections will now occur every four years simultaneously. The deadline for nominations is 4:00pm Friday 6 April 2018.

Have you some spare time to give?

We have one meeting a month, except for December, which lasts for about two hours. You can give as much time as you have but remember the more time you put in the more you get out of it!

Why become a councillor?

You become someone your community will look to for help, guidance and support with the power to influence decisions for the benefit of the community.
