Latest News:

What is a Parish Councillor?

Have you ever found yourself curious about what a Parish Councillor actually does? Well, let's shed some light on this vital role within our community.

A Parish Councillor is a volunteer, who gives their time freely for the benefit of our village. They're not just members of the council; they're our neighbours, friends, and fellow community enthusiasts who step up to make a difference.

What do they do?

Voice Your Concerns: They represent YOU, ensuring your voice and concerns are heard, asking questions of Broadland District and Norfolk County Council. They give feedback on planning applications ensuring local opinion is represented.

Decision Makers: From maintaining public open spaces, planning local events and managing budgets for community facilities, they're involved in decisions that shape the future of our village.

Community Champions: Whether it's supporting local businesses, improving public spaces, or advocating for better services, they're always looking out for our best interests.

Why It Matters?

Being a Parish Councillor is about passion, not politics. It's about volunteering time and effort to improve our village for the whole community.
