Once every four years, a new parish council is elected: 2019 is an election year.  Anyone (including current councillors) who wishes to serve as councillor from May 2019 onwards, needs to put themselves forward for election (although, in practice, a ballot will only be held if there are more than six applicants).  Details of the process are on the North Somerset Council website (scroll right down to the bottom for “Parish Councillors”).  The deadline is 4.00 pm on Wednesday 3 April 2019.
