WASHINGTON PARISH COUNCIL should have 11 councillors but we are currently understrength and looking for new members.

WHAT MAKES A GOOD PARISH COUNCILLOR? Our members come from a wide variety of backgrounds but we all love our parish and wish to do everything we can to maintain and cherish what we have whilst also keeping a close eye on all potential planning developments and reporting our views to the relevant planning authorities to ensure the best result. All members can freely express their views in a relaxed and friendly meeting before any decision is taken.

The only requirements are that you must live or work in the parish, like to keep abreast of local issues and be able to attend evening meetings on the 1st and 3rd Monday each month.

Should you feel able to join us we would be very pleased to hear from you. Please contact our Clerk on 0777 6771921 or email clerk@washingtonparish.org.uk
