Parish Council Elections – Your chance to work for your community

On 2nd May elections will take place for members of Broadmayne Parish Council.

Are you ready to help the village meet the challenge of the new local government structure and the potential for more local responsibilities leading to more local achievements?

This is your opportunity to get involved.

If you would like to consider offering your services, any of our councillors would be happy to discuss the role with you. We can also lend you a copy of “The Good Councillor’s Guide” which will explain the position in more detail.

To be nominated for the election you need to be over 18 and satisfy one of a few possible conditions, mainly about living or working in the parish – all these can be explained to you if you are interested.

Being a Parish Councillor is a very valuable way of serving the community – rewarding, if sometimes frustrating, you should consider it.
