Do you have an interest in your local community? Are there things you think could or should be done to improve life in our village? Are you passionate enough to want to make a difference?
We are looking for people to join us at Lawford Parish Council. We are not politically driven, we are here to support the local community not a political party.
Interested? Please contact Bridget Tighe, the Parish Clerk, on 01206 395898 or firstname.lastname@example.org to hear more about how you can get involved.
What do we do?
A parish councillor is someone your community will look to for help, guidance and support; a community leader with the power to influence decisions for the benefit of the people you serve. Seeing your community change for the better, as a result of decisions you have helped make, can give you a sense of pride and achievement .
Parish councils make decisions on issues that affect the local community including planning matters, crime prevention and striving for better services and facilities. As a parish council gives the best reflection of a community's opinion its views are taken seriously by the decision makers.
