Your Parish Councillors

Parish Councillor's come from various backgrounds and give their time freely to represent the views of all residents within the Parish to listen to and understand the views and needs of different groups in the community.

Whilst elections are scheduled to take place every four years (next 2023) each year the Council elects a Chairman and Vice-Chairman to oversee the conduct at meetings.
