Following the resignations of Annie Stack (who has served on the council for 10 years) and Colin Starling (who joined us at the May 2015 election), there are now two vacancies on the parish council for individuals to serve their remaining term of office ie until May 2019 (next year) when there will be another full election.
Please find below the official notice of vacancies for the two posts. If ten electors give notice in writing to the returning officer by 26 April 2018 then a by-election will be called to fill these posts. If no election is requested, then the parish council will fill the vacancies via co-option of suitably qualified persons.
