If you enjoy being part of a community and would like to make a difference and do more to help, you could become a local councillor.
You must be British, Irish, a member of the Commonwealth or other European Union country, and over 18 to stand for election.
You can either be nominated through a political party or nominate yourself as an independent, with two registered electors in support.
From time to time, casual vacancies can occur on Parish Councils. These can be filled by a process of co-option if no election is called. Find out more by contacting your Parish Clerk.
