Being a Councillor can be challenging but very rewarding.  Councillor Elaine Holmes said:

“I take pride in the number of people for whom I have been of help, assistance, and support over the years - and look forward to continuing to do so. It is very satisfying to help people resolve issues which have been troubling them and their family. Twenty years have flown by - and my enthusiasm and commitment are not diminished.”

The "Be a Councillor" website has useful information and links to help you find out more about what is invloved in becoming a Councillor. 

If you are interested in becoming a Parish Councillor, please contact the Clerk to the Parish you wish to stand in.
