Why become a parish councillor?

If you’ve never been to a parish council meeting before, you may be forgiven for thinking that parish councillors are a group of (probably older) people who meet now and then in a draughty village hall to discuss budgets and parish precepts, making decisions that have little impact on the community they serve.

If, however, you live in a community where something ‘big’ has happened – such as a contentious planning application – you’ll know that when people in the community need support and guidance, it is that same group of people in the village hall they will turn to.
