Do you have concerns about a specific issue and want to do something about it? If this is you, then we need you. We need people from all backgrounds and experiences who reflect their community to put themselves forward for election. Make a change and become a councillor. The Role of a Parish Councillor is a voluntary role and is basically to serve your community as best you can and help the Council make decisions on behalf of the community working together as a

Meetings are held on the penultimate Wednesday of each month, (no meeting in August or December) at Thorngumbald Village Hall. If co-opted, you will be obliged to complete and sign a Declaration of Acceptance of Office and a Register of Interest. Thorngumbald Parish Council are also Trustees of Ryehill Village Institute, if co-opted as a Councillor you automatically become a Trustee. These meetings are usually held on the same night as a Parish Council meeting.
