There is now a vacancy on the Parish Council. Membership of the Council is open to anyone who lives or owns a business in, or within three miles of, Stinchcombe
Having joined the Council in December 2019 and chaired it since May 2021, Simon Packer has now resigned. He has worked very hard for the benefit of the village and the PC would like to thank him for his very valuable contribution.
This means that there is now a vacancy on the Parish Council. Membership of the Council is open to anyone who lives or owns a business in, or within three miles of, Stinchcombe and is an opportunity to be involved in village life and to have a say in what happens here. It involves attendance at, usually, nine meetings per year, at approximately six-week intervals (with mulled wine at Christmas!) and each lasting about an hour and a half. There is also some communication by email between meetings. It would be an excellent way for someone new to the village to become established and get to know people or for those who’ve been here a while to become more involved and we would welcome applications from new residents as well as long-standing ones.
Ours is a very small Parish Council with only five members but a quorum of three is required for meetings (the same as for a council of ten members). If we don’t have a full complement of councillors, a touch of flu and a traffic jam on the same day can mean cancelling a meeting at short notice. This hasn’t happened often but means that we would like to fill the vacancy as soon as possible. If you think you might be interested, don’t hesitate to contact the Clerk at email@example.com for more information.
