There does seem to be a general nationwide disillusionment with the democratic process and a feeling that the man in the street can’t really affect anything. In addition our lives certainly seem busier and more complicated. However if anyone out there could spare a couple of hours a week helping to do a necessary and worthwhile job then the role of Parish Councillor can be rewarding and might even help you to wind down and to put life into perspective. We currently have 4 vacancies so if you do have the interest of your community at heart do consider putting yourself forward. If the number of councillors continues to fall we will be at risk of losing control of our own local affairs and others will be making more decisions for us. The choice is ours. Please contact the Parish Clerk or any councillor for more information.
