2019 = ELECTION YEAR!
In May, Councillors will be asked if they wish to stand down or stay on for a further four years. However, if not enough candidates come forward – either new or returning -- to fill the eleven seats available, then those Councillors who want to continue will automatically be re-elected without the need for a poll.
If you are interested in STANDING FOR ELECTION, please CONTACT THE CLERK OR ANY COUNCILLOR
