Could I be a parish councillor?

As a councillor you can become a voice for your community and affect real change. It helps if you're a "people person" who enjoys talking to other residents but, more importantly, you need to have the concerns and best interests of the parish as a whole at heart. Councillors are community leaders and should represent the aspirations of the public that they serve. Parish councils are the most local part of our democratic system and are closest to the public. Why don't you stand for your local parish council and see what difference you can make to your local community?

How much time does it take up and when?

On average, less than a couple of hours a week. Obviously there are some councillors who spend more time than this - and some less, but in the main, being a parish councillor is an enjoyable way of contributing to your community and helping to make it a better place to live and work. Council meetings are always held in the evening - as are most meetings of the other groups which councillors attend on the Council's behalf. Talking and listening to your fellow parishioners can be done at any time but you must be able to spend a couple of hours every six to eight weeks (in the evening) attending the Council meeting.
