The parish election was last held in May 2015. The election was uncontested as 7 nominations were received for the 7 positions. The following persons were appointed as Parish Councillors.

  • Dr Alison Brown
  • Mr John Dickinson
  • Mr Ernest Law-Riding
  • Mrs Carol Milne
  • Mr Geoffrey Rollinson

  • Mr Ian Sayers

At the Annual Council meeting held on 16 May Cllr. Ian Sayers was appointed Chairman with Cllr Law-Riding as vice-Chairman.

Councillor Colin Cunliffe stepped down from the Council and we thank him for his hard work and service.

Councillors have three main areas of work:

  1. Decision-making: through attending meetings and committees with other elected members, councillors decide which activities to support, where money should be spent, what services should be delivered and what policies should be implemented;
  2. Monitoring: councillors make sure that their decisions lead to efficient and effective services by keeping an eye on how well things are working;
  3. Getting involved locally: as local representatives, councillors have responsibilities towards their parishioners and local organisations.
