Have you considered becoming a Cholsey Parish Councillor?

We currently have two Councillor vacancies and would love to hear from you.

The Council meets at Cholsey Pavilion, 7.30pm, on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month.

It is a particularly interesting time to join the Council as we begin work on a 5-year strategic plan. This will help us understand the needs of our community, and how we as a Parish Council can best support those needs. We want to make the best use of the resources we have.

For an informal chat about what the role involves please get in touch by emailing the Clerk, Claire Bird, at clerk@cholseyparishcouncil.gov.uk, calling 01491 652255, or by contacting a current Councillor. Applications for these particular vacancies are encouraged by 16th December 2022.

Come and help make a difference to our wonderful village!
