A councillor is a member of the council and is normally elected for a term of four years. People of any political or religious persuasion are eligible to become a councillor for Drayton, although their personal, political views should not extend into their parish council work.
Becoming a parish councillor is a rewarding and valued form of public service. All councillors contribute to the work of the Parish Council by:
Having a say about the things they care about
Putting forward ideas for better services
Responding to the needs and views of parishioners
Seeking the best outcome to local issues
Getting involved in decision making
Helping to make Drayton a better place to live!
We normally meet on the first Thursday of every month. Meetings commence at 7 pm lasting around 2 hours at The Pavilion, King George V Playing Field (KGV), although these are currently only taking place virtually using Zoom. Councillors are expected to attend meetings on a regular basis.
There are 5 vacancies on the Parish Council at present. If you're interested, contact the clerk to find out more.
