Many people don’t fully understand what local councils do, nor what being a local councillor involves. Unfortunately, this can dissuade passionate and enthusiastic people from considering becoming a councillor and helping to make a positive difference in their community.
If you have ever thought about joining the Parish Council but aren’t clear what it might involve, this free webinar will provide a great overview of the role, the process and the experience. A panel of speakers – all local councillors themselves – will be talking about their own journey into local governance and what they enjoy about the process. They will also provide some practical advice on how to make it happen for yourself.
The webinar is being run on Zoom by the Local Government Association at 10-11.30am on Tuesday 7 June. More details are available on the website, where there is a link to book your place. You can also find a description of the role in this document on our own website.
Eynsham Parish Council currently has a number of vacancies for councillors and we’re keen to welcome some fresh new faces to join us. If you’d like more details or want to apply, please contact our Clerk on firstname.lastname@example.org.
