“Standing as a parish councillor can be exceptionally rewarding and by standing and being elected you can help change your community for the better. Age or experience is not important, you can represent your local area as long as you are over 18. You don’t have to be part of a political party, anyone can stand as an independent candidate. If there’s a particular local issue you wish to influence or feel passionate about, why not stand for election?
You could also actively play a part in hosting and co-ordinating community events and celebrations. Being a Parish Councillor can be great way to influence the shape of a wider community’s activities and initiatives and unite people together to achieve more.” – Returning Officer and Council Chief Executive Allen Graham
