He highlights the importance of having a diverse range of councillors from various backgrounds and experiences to better reflect the community they serve. He said:

"If you have ideas to help make this community a better place to live, learn, work, or visit, and feel able to persuade others of their benefit over their cost, this is your opportunity."

"Being a town councillor is one of the ways to work with others try to put your ideas into practice for the benefit of the community as a whole."

"It is important that councillors come from a diverse range of ages, gender, ethnicity, abilities, experience and other backgrounds, so I encourage people from all walks of life not to be backwards in coming forwards. There are professional, qualified, skilled and experienced staff here to help you."

Interested individuals can contact the town clerk at 01686 625544 or email [email protected] to find out more about the role of a town councillor and the application process.

The deadline for applications is midday on 06/06/2024, so don't miss out on this chance to become actively involved in shaping the future of Newtown.
