Every 4 years all parish councillors have to stand for election - there are 11 seats on Blockley Parish Council.
This is your chance to have a say in the way your community works! The Parish Council is the first step in making your village's voice heard. Blockley is one of the most spread out parishes in England, so its Parish Council covers not only Blockley village, but also Draycott, Paxford, Aston Magna and right across the Fosse to Ditchford. For this, it needs 11 Councillors spread out over the area. Most Cotswold parishes have no difficulty in finding a full complement of Councillors, and can field a varied team to take on all the current issues - planning, traffic, green space, trees and burials to name but a few. You don't need special expertise to do the job, just commitment to your community - it's interesting and worthwhile. Give it a try by putting your name forward!
