Become a councillor webpage

Published: 09 September 2020

There is a new webpage on our website: Become a councillor.

On the 'Become a councillor' webpage, there is helpful advice and guidance about what is expected of a councillor and what attributes make a good councillor.

There are currently councillor vacancies within our parish and there will be elections for all 18 councillor seats on Thursday 6th May 2021.

If you are passionate about the local area and want to represent and engage with your local community, then stand to be a councillor. 

If you would like to discuss the responsibilities of being a councillor and how to stand for election, please contact our Town Clerk, Delia Shephard, for an informal chat about what is involved and what the next steps are to stand for election.

Please contact the Town Council by ringing 01908 649 469 or email
