Could you become an Evesham Town Councillor?

Evesham Editorial 17th Mar, 2019   0

PEOPLE who are passionate about Evesham and their community are being urged to consider standing in this year’s town council elections.

British citizens, a citizen of the Commonwealth or the European Union can stand if they live in the area and are over 18.

Councillors champion their community and give residents a voice on the decisions the council makes.

Many people become councillors to make a difference by engaging with residents, local groups and businesses to find out their needs.




They also make decisions on which services and projects the council should take forward and get involved locally to ensure the services meet their community’s needs.

The National Association of Local Councils (NALC) Local Councillor Census Survey found councillors put aside, on average, three hours a week for council work.


This often included attending meetings, engaging with residents and speaking on behalf of the council to other bodies.

Anyone wanting to find out more can email [email protected] or call 01386 565700.

Alternatively, visit www.eveshamtowncouncil.gov.uk or write to Stuart Carter (Town Clerk) Evesham Town Council, Unit 6 (Ground Floor), Abbey Lane Court, Abbey Lane, Evesham WR11 4SB.
