Do you have what it takes to be a Parish Councillor and represent the West & Middle Chinnock local Residents?
A casual vacancy is now open for a new Member to join the existing team of Councillors on the Parish Council and needs to be filled by what is called “co-option” (In basic language this means – there is no election.)
Recognised as one of the most pro-active Parish Councils in the South Somerset area, West & Middle Chinnock Parish Council is definitely not JK Rowling’s BBC adaption of The Casual Vacancy in the fictional Parish of Pagford. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Casual_Vacancy_(miniseries),
We are vibrant and forward thinking and keen to co-opt a hands on Parish Council Member with a passion for supporting all of our local community.
If you are interested in joining, please contact the Clerk for an informal chat.
