    Thursday 04 May - Parish Election – Parish Councillors Needed

    Parish councillors are elected by the public every four years. The date for the next parish council election in this parish is Thursday 4th May.

    Why we need a Parish Council

    Without a fully functioning Parish Council decisions about investment and maintenance of the Ashwell assets currently managed by the Parish Council would be taken by North Herts Council. Standards would not necessarily be maintained.

    Being parishcouncillor is an unpaid position. The councillors meet monthly, on a Wednesday evening, but most other duties can be carried out to fit in with ‘normal’ life.

    Why become a Parish Councillor

    • Meet and work with like-minded people
    • Use your experience and skills for the benefit of the community
    • A great way of becoming involved and more integrated in village life
    • Promote/pursue your interests and/or concerns and those of other village residents
    • Influence community focus on transport, environment, sustainability, services, and development
