Our parish council has 7 seats. Currently it only has 6 of those seats filled. Do you care about your village? Could you attend 75% of the monthly meetings each year? If the answer is YES, then why not offer to be co-opted and represent your village? If we can fill all SEVEN seats then we’ll have a better, stronger and more democratic parish council.
Do you qualify to be a councillor? You must be a UK, Commonwealth or Irish citizen or a citizen of another EU member state, over 18 and not disqualified by statute, and are one of these:
