Vacancies for two Parish Councillors

=========================================================================================================================

CO-OPTION OF PARISH COUNCILLORS

Following the death earlier this year of Anthony Kendall, and the resignation of Michael Pickthall in July for personal reasons, the Parish Council now has vacancies for two Parish Councillors.

The Parish Council is looking for suitably qualified and talented local people to fill these vacancies as quickly as possible by co-opting two new members without the need for a local election. Do you have skills and knowledge that could help our local community? Or just an interest in village life. lf so, you may be just the type of person we need.

Please contact the Chairman (Stephen Haymes) on 01243 551475, any Parish Councillor or the Clerk of the Council (Andrew Gardiner) on 01243 859141 or by e-mail; Clerk@yaptonpc.gov.uk if you need more information or wish to discuss the co-option process. Information on the vacant positions and details on how to apply including an Application Form for completion, can be downloaded here . The Application form should be completed and returned to the Clerk by the closing date of 23rd October 2020 for receipt of applications. 

Interviews for prospective candidates are due to be held by the full Parish Council at a special evening meeting which is likely to be in the first week of November 2020.
