PARISH COUNCIL VACANCIES

The parish council has now filled all vacant seats following the May 2021 election. If any councillor ceases to continue in his or her office for whatever reason before the next election in May 2025, then a casual vacancy will arise and details will be publicised on this website, on the noticeboard at the village hall and through Shropshire Council. Whilst there are currently no vacancies, members of the public are always welcome to attend council meetings to listen to the business being discussed and speak if they wish to on any items on the agenda during a special public session item.
