Have you ever considered becoming a Parish Councillor? The role would suit anyone who cares about the wellbeing and future of our village community.
There are normally ten meetings every year, on Wednesday evenings, with agendas and reports sent to you beforehand for consideration.
Training is available from the Somerset Association of Local Councils for those who want it.
The formal election notice is here –
and the process is set by statute. There is a period of fourteen days in which electors can write to the Returning Officer at Mendip District Council requesting a poll. If ten or more electors do not request a poll, then the Parish Council will co-opt a Councillor. If you are interested in being co-opted you can express an interest immediately to any Councillor, or the Clerk by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you just want more information, or to discuss the role further, please get in touch!
