WE NEED YOU!
IF YOU CARE ABOUT TETBURY AND ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT OUR COMMUNITY WHY DON’T YOU CONSIDER BECOMING A MEMBER OF TETBURY TOWN COUNCIL?
Come and meet some of us for a coffee and an informal chat at our information drop-in sessions at the Community Hub, Coombe House, New Church Street, Tetbury (formerly @Tetbury):
Wednesday 27th February 2pm – 4pm
Thursday 7th March 6pm – 8pm

There are 15 seats available and a poll will only take place if 16 or more applications are received – should this figure not be reached all applicants will be elected unopposed and therefore automatically members of the Town Council.
What do councillors do?
Councillors are the champions of their community and give residents a voice on the decisions the council makes. Becoming a councillor will allow you to make a real difference in your community by engaging with residents, local groups and businesses to find out their needs; making decisions on which services and projects the council should take forward; and getting involved locally to ensure the services are meeting your community’s needs.
How long does it take?
The National Association of Local Councils (NALC) Local Councillor Census Survey found that councillors put aside, on average, three hours a week for council work. This often includes attending meetings, engaging with residents and speaking on behalf of the council to other bodies.
Can I stand?
There are only a few rules to stand for election. You must be:
- A British citizen, or a citizen of the Commonwealth, or the European Union
- 18 years of age or older
• Live in an area that is served by a local council
