cpclogoJust a note to highlight that we remain short of Councillors at Charfield, and would welcome interest from any parishioner who might feel able to volunteer.

The role of Parish Councillor is important, occasionally challenging, and vital. Parish Councillors represent their community as the first tier of local government, and have significant input into decisions made by other statutory bodies such as South Gloucestershire County Council, emergency services and government departments.

The Parish Council meets once a month in full session, and councillors can sit on other groups as parish council representatives. Most meetings are in the evening, and while there are no cash inducements it is an otherwise rewarding role.

If you would like to chat informally about the role, do give the Clerk a call.
