Elections: This year is an election year in Stonesfield! Elections take place in May but forms to get your name on the election list come out end March.
What does this mean? It means that ALL seats for the Parish Council are to be re-elected. We need YOU to represent your village.
Some of our existing councillors would like to sit again but it is likely not all – all seats need to be re-elected. If you are interested in becoming a councillor please come along to a Parish Council meeting, chat to an existing councillor or the clerk to ask questions about what it may involve.
Being a councillor is an unpaid role and does require a few hours of your time each month (including one evening monthly meeting) but it does not require any formal qualifications – just an interest in what’s going on in your community.
You can make a difference in your village, your voice can influence District and County decisions, you can influence budget and how money is spent in the village and provide a voice for members of the village amongst many other things. Being a councillor is for everyone aged 18 and over. It would be great to have representation from some of our youngsters too.
To find out a bit more informally there are some FREE zoom sessions ‘So you want to be a councillor?
The zoom sessions are arranged by the Oxfordshire Association of Local Councils and is a one hour session which sets out the basics of being a councillor with the opportunity to ask questions as well.
The sessions are one hour long, no need to book, on:
- 24th January 7-8pm
- 13th February 10-11am
- 15th March 2-3pm
