Buckinghamshire Council has confirmed that no election has been requested by residents and we will therefore seek to fill the casual vacancy for a parish councillor to serve out the remaining term of office until the next election in May 2025 via co-option.
Do you have a passion for the village we live in and plenty of spare time (an average of 3 hours per week) to volunteer? You can find some initial information here about what parish councils do and what you could expect from your role as a councillor: https://pitstone.co.uk/ppcnews/calling-all-community-heroes-become-a-parish-councillor-elections-in-may-2021/
When you join the parish council, you also become a corporate trustee to two local charities, the Pitstone Recreation Ground Charity and the Pitstone Parish Charity, so the above link also includes information from the Charity Commission on Essential Trustee guidance.
If you are interested in joining us, please contact the parish clerk on firstname.lastname@example.org or 01296 767261 and we will happily chat to you and provide a full information pack.
Applications to be received by Monday 4 March 2024.
