What is a Parish Councillor?
Councillors are over 18 and a qualifying citizen. They are one of over 80,000 local Councillors in England.
They are held accountable by local people for things that happen locally.
They almost certainly want to do something positive and make a difference by influencing decisions that affect our community.
Councillors work together in the council serving our community.
Their task is to bring local issues to the attention of the council, and help it make decisions on behalf of the local community.
