Have you thought about standing for the Parish Council? You now have just 6 days to register your interest!
On the 7 May, the same day as the general election, many local Town and Parish Councils, including Badby, will be holding elections for their Councillors for the next four years.
There are 9 places on the Parish Council, and the elections in May will be for all places on the Parish Council – existing members who wish to continue will have to stand for election in the same way as new candidates.
If there are 9 (or fewer) candidates, then no formal election will be held on 7 May and those candidates will automatically be elected to the Parish Council.
To stand for the Parish Council you must complete the Nomination Forms, available from the Clerk, Sharon Foster (01327 310245 or firstname.lastname@example.org) and return the completed forms to the DDC Offices no later than 4:00pm on Thursday 9 April. You will need a proposer and seconder.
If you wish to speak to someone about what it entails then contact any of the current Councillors – names and contact details are on http://www.badbyvillage.com and the Parish noticeboards.
