FUNTINGTON PARISH COUNCIL IS LOOKING TO CO-OPT SOME NEW COUNCILLORS
The required 14 days in which Notice of Vacancies have been displayed has now expired and the Parish Council is looking co-opt to fill the most recent two casual vacancies.
So what does a Parish Councillor do?
A Parish Councillor must represent the interests of the whole community. Being a parish councillor is a voluntary task, often maligned, rarely praised, with few rewards, certainly none financial, but extremely good for the soul.
Each councillor has their own reasons for running but the role offers the chance to make a huge difference to the quality of life for people in your local area. Whatever the reason, being an effective councillor requires both commitment and hard work. Councillors have to balance the needs and interests of residents and the council.
Training is available and support will be found from colleagues, the Clerk to the Council, as well as from the Surrey and Sussex Association of Local Councils.
So if you want to do more for your community, if you want to spend your time productively, and if you can think, listen and act locally — Become a Parish Councillor.
