The closing date for nominations to stand for the Parish Council is April 3rd at 4pm. There is an urgent call for new candidates for the Parish Council to stand for the election on May 2nd. There are 1627 electors in the Parish and so far only 3 people have agreed to be put forward with 11 vacancies. Margaret Bryan, Kevan Lambert, Sarah Keay-Bright and Peter Craig will all be stepping down, so there is an urgent call for more candidates. The reality is that if there are not enough councillors then the Parish Council will have to be wound up and Cotswold District Council in Cirencester will be responsible.
The Parish Council meets 10 times a year on the third Thursday of the month in the evening and it is responsible for the play areas, St George's Hall, the churchyard and cemeteries and we need councillors from Paxford, Draycott and Aston Magna. If you would like a nomination pack or to know more, please contact Alexia Monroe (acting Clerk).
