Your Parish Needs You!
On May 5th this year there will be three important democratic events in Denton. There will be district council elections and (probably?) the referendum on a change to the parliamentary voting system but, perhaps most important of all for the local community, there will also be parish council elections.
All seven members of the current council step down together and though most will probably seek re-election at least one has indicated that he will be retiring after many years service. We will mark this in an appropriate fashion in due course but it seems that there will be a vacancy for at least one new councillor. As discussed at the January meeting of the PC, it would be even better if several residents put themselves forward and there was a contested election in May.
Anyone interested in standing who requires more information about what the job entails or the process of standing for election should contact the parish clerk, Pauline Sandell.
