If you are interested in how your Parish is looked after and how it develops then why not consider becoming a Parish Councillor?

The positions are voluntary and take up as much time as you are prepared to give. The minimum commitment is at least to attend the monthly Parish Council meeting normally held on a Monday evening.

With this in mind please note that we are making Friday 19th June 2015 at 5pm as the deadline for applications for this meeting.
