Be a Parish Councillor!

We currently have a vacancy on the Brixworth Parish Council.

This is a rewarding volunteer role within the community and by contributing just a few hours per month you can be involved in the local decision-making process. The Parish Council meets monthly in the Village Hall (last Thursday of the month) and we have a friendly team of Councillors who work together for the benefit of Brixworth.

Parish Councillors decide which activities to support, where locally raised money should be spent, what services should be delivered and ensure that the Council operates within its powers. The Parish Council comments on local planning applications and it is also the trustee for the Community Centre.

Training, development and support is offered to new Councillors. The meetings are jargon-free and usually finish by 9.30pm.

This is a great opportunity to volunteer and get involved. Younger people could also reap the benefit of having community involvement on their CV!

Applicants should be on the electoral register and be over 18 years old. You must have lived in the Parish, owned land, or worked in the Parish for at least 12 months.

Interested? Please access the form at http://www.brixworthpc.org.uk/forms/ and return it completed to the Parish Clerk (brixworthpc@gmail.com)

The closing date for written applications is Friday 16th February 2018

Community Speed Watch – Vacancy

Community Speed Watch is a volunteer programme, run between the Police and Northamptonshire County Council. The programme aims to increase the awareness of the dangers of speeding through education. Drivers detected for speeding receive a Police Warning letter and their records are held to identify any repeat offenders.

Speed Watch are recruiting to the local team for 2018.  There is currently a vacancy for the ‘Volunteer Coordinator’. As a Coordinator you will act as point of contact for the scheme, arrange the enforcement timetable during your 3 weeks with the equipment and arrange equipment swap overs with your local partner group. You will already have a great set of local volunteers to work with and full training is provided.

Interested? Please e mail Gary.Wright@Northants.pnn.police.uk
