Who can join the parish council?

The parish council is re-elected every three years, the next election date being May 2022.
Any parishioner may stand for election to the parish council or, in the event of an uncontested vacancy, apply to serve.
In practice there has never been a surplus of candidates to prompt an election, and so the council is composed of residents who have continuously volunteered to serve.
When a vacancy occurs between elections the existing councillors choose a replacement.
Anyone interested in serving on the parish council should contact the clerk.
