Vacancy for a Councillor
You may see a notice advertising this vacancy on our notice boards. It is the required formal wording for advertising a vacancy on the Parish Council.
If 10 eligible people from the parish request it then an election will be held, but if this doesn’t happen within 14 days then the Parish Council will co-opt someone to fill the vacancy. This means that the Parish Council look for volunteers and, if more than one, vote to decide who is co-opted.
If you feel you would like to get involved in making decisions about your local community, local issues and make a significant contribution to the area in which you live or work, then this is the position for you! Please use the contact form on the Parish Council website to register your interest.

If you suffer with slow broadband you can get help from the Better Broadband Scheme.
Our MP Owen Paterson recently wrote to all local Parish Councils to let them know that the Government has extended the scheme until the end of 2019. The Better Broadband Scheme offers a subsidised basic broadband connection to anyone unable to get download speeds of at least 2 mbps, and who will not benefit from the superfast broadband roll out within the next 12 months.
