Stinchcombe Parish Council - A community with Spirit

Clerk to Stinchcombe Parish Council

Stinchcombe Parish Clerk Vacancy

Would you like to become more involved with what goes on in your Parish?

If so and you have 2-3 hours per week to work, the Parish Council is looking to replace its current Parish Clerk who is retiring after providing many years of valuable support.

Stinchcombe Parish Council has five councillors, three of whom are new to the role and two who are experienced, so a good mix. We are looking to engage more with the Stinchcombe Community as we take the Village forward.

We would be delighted to hear from anyone able and interested in joining us. You do not need to have specific experience as training can be provided.

If you would like an informal chat for further information, please contact Charlie Macfarlane on 07976 353325 or Tracey Legg on 07790 389467.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Chair of the Parish Council

Join the Parish Council

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 for more information.
