Parish & Town Council Elections 2015
Are you passionate about the area you live in and have ideas for ways to improve it? Do you want to make a difference? Do you have good communication skills, the ability to listen to the views of other members of your community and the desire to represent those views effectively in Parish Council meetings? Do you have a skill which would be an asset to the Parish Council? If you can answer yes to these questions then don’t leave it to someone else. If you believe you could make a difference to your area then you should put yourself forward. Contested elections are good for democracy and democratically elected and accountable councillors will help to build a stronger council that can move forward with the backing of the electorate. The local elections on 7th May are the perfect opportunity for you to get involved in shaping the future of your local community.
Following the local elections on Thursday 7th May 2015 we have a few changes to the make up of Lockwood Parish Council.
In Boosbeck, with Clive and Jean Maidens having already retired before Christmas and Kath Jackson stepping down at the election, we now have three new councillors representing the Boosbeck Ward - Marlene Brown, Paul Reed and Rachel Swarbrick.
In Lingdale Joan James has stepped down and her place as a councillor has been taken by Paula Miller.
