Following the resignation of Katy Mimpress there is one Parish Councillor vacancy.
The Notice of Vacancy is available. If no-one calls for an election by 13 October, the Parish Council will be able to co-opt. However, if there is a call for an election this will not take place until 6 May 2021 as a result of the Local Government and Police and Crime Commissioner (Coronavirus)(Postponement of Elections and Referendums)(England and Wales) Regulations 2020 and the Coronavirus Act 2020.
Anyone interested in putting themselves forward would be very welcome to talk to either the Clerk or other Councillors and to come along to Parish Council meetings.
For more information about the duties of a Councillor, please contact any of the current Councillors or the Clerk; the details are in the About Us page. The advert will be available shortly; prospective Councillors will need to complete this simple application form
The Good Councillors’ Guide is a great start to explain Parish Councillor responsibilities.
And the Good Councillor’s Guide to Finance and Transparency is also really useful.
