Kempsford Parish Council
PARISH COUNCILLOR VACANCY
Further to the recent notice about the vacancy arising from the retirement of Sue Griffin from Whelford, the time has passed for an election to be called so the Parish Council now wish to co-opt a new parish councillor.
Could this be you? Are you interested in serving your local community?
Kempsford Parish covers the villages of Kempsford and Whelford, and the hamlets of Dunfield and Dudgrove.
The Council meets monthly, usually the third Tuesday in the month, and meetings are generally held at Kempsford Village Hall, with Whelford Village Hall as a reserve option.
Parish Councillors volunteer their time to work on behalf of their local community. If you have lived in the Parish, or within 3 miles of it, for at least a year and are over 18, you are probably eligible (please check with the clerk for further eligibility criteria). Training will be given by the Gloucestershire Association of Parish & Town Councils, and funded by the Parish Council, if desired.
A copy of the Application and Eligibility Form, together with the Council’s Co-option Policy is available on the ‘Publications’ page of this website or via the Clerk.
Applications close on Monday 13th July 2020.
A decision to co-opt an applicant will be made at the next meeting of the Parish Council which will be held on Tuesday 21st July 2020.
