As you are already aware 3 of a possible 7 Councillors were elected to take office for the next 4 years with effect from 8th May 2019.

It was disappointing that more residents did not submit nominations, given the strength of feeling within the village in the past on issues such as flooding, the primary school, St Mary’s and St Saviour’s church, dog bins, red box, tree preservation, tourism, pond, a village plan that goes hand in hand with planning, parish hall, litter, play park, staithe, village shop, footpaths, speeding, pot holes and much more.
It is important that the council represents a broad spectrum of the community to ensure a balanced debate on all issues.
If you do care about the place where you live and would like to help bring about change in the village then why not consider being co-opted onto the council?
As the public face of the council you would attend regular meetings and share the responsibilities of the council with your colleagues.
If you wish you can access training provided by Norfolk Association of Local Councils.
If you would like to apply please send your details and your reasons for applying either via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org or write to The Parish Clerk, 1 Broadfields Way, Rockland St Mary, NR14 7HJ.
Applications will be considered by the councillors prior to the Annual Parish Council meeting on the 21 May 2019 when the appointments will be made.
