Fylingdales - an area in need of new parish councillors

Parish councils serve the needs of their local communities in a variety of different ways.

Parish councillors give their time and skills voluntarily to deal with issues that concern their local communities.

Their concern is for the place in which they live. It depends on what a parish council is dealing with at any one time as to the commitment of time a parish councillor has to make.

Parish councillors are required to attend the regular meetings of the parish council.

It is of great concern that parish councils have difficulty in getting people to make the commitment of becoming parish councillors.

If you care about the place in which you live perhaps you can consider becoming a parish councillor?

Your local parish clerk can give you all the details you need.

Their information is available on the Scarborough Borough Council website.

Hawsker cum Stainsacre and Fylingdales Parish Councils both need new parish councillors.

Please contact the parish clerk, Virginia Ramsey, on (01947) 811069 or virginia.ramsey@btinternet.com for more details.
