Could you be one of Shipston’s new Councillors?

Shipston Town Council currently has a number of town Councillor vacancies and would like to hear from anyone interested in becoming a community leader by representing the views of Shipston residents.

We are looking for people who would like to become more involved in influencing and shaping the future of our town by improving the environment and services available in Shipston and the surrounding area. Shipston Town Council is an elected body of Councillors, including a Mayor and Deputy Mayor, who are supported by a town clerk and assistant. It is the first tier of government providing services on behalf of the residents of the town.

Please feel free to contact any of the current Councillors (see page 15) to discuss what is required for this role and how you may be able to volunteer around your current commitments and/or contact the Town Clerk to register your expression of interest including details of your skills, interests and passions.
