These are local people, interested in helping manage and improve the area they live in. They serve for four years and are unpaid.
Currently, there are 9 men and 9 women on the Town Council.
All but one person stands as a Conservative, although politics don’t exist at this level of local administration. That’s not to say that disagreements don’t happen from time to time…….
Their professions cover a broad range of backgrounds, from surveying, IT, lawyer, florist, greengrocer, interior designer, City trader, house-husbands, and wives.
