05 March 2019 - Could you be interested in becoming a Parish Councillor?


The term of office for the current Parish Council will soon be concluded (yes, weíve been going for four years!), and local elections will take place on 2 May. There are currently five members of the council, but we have the capacity to elect seven councillors.

At our meeting on 13 March at 7pm at the Community Pavilion we will spend some time talking about what our responsibilities are and what weíve been able to achieve over the past four years, in order to (hopefully) encourage others to become councillors. If youíre interested, why not come along? You wonít be committing to anything but if you would like to join us we can talk through the nomination process (which isnít onerous).

If you canít make the meeting and you are interested in becoming a Parish Councillor, please do give me a ring on 01273 475148, or email me on

Chair, Kingston Parish Council
