Join viral sensation, Jackie Weaver, and a group of community heroes to discuss getting involved with your local (parish and town) council. Are you passionate about your community? Do you want to help make a long-lasting change? Do you have concerns about a specific issue and want to do something about it? This event will tell you what you need to know about local councils, and what they do, the role of a councillor and how to become one.
Speakers: Cllr Emily Benner, Croxley Green Parish Council, Cllr Rachael Pearson, Denmead Parish Council, Cllr Dan Thomas, mayor of Much Wenlock Town Council and Jackie Weaver, chief officer at the Cheshire Association of Local Councils
Host: Matt Chorley, presenter for Times Radio and Saturday columnist for The Times
NB: This event is part of NALC's Make A Change campaign to encourage more people from all backgrounds and experiences who are undiscovered community heroes to put themselves forward for election. If you are already involved in local councils as councillor, clerk or any other council staff, please find out more about our other events.
