Holme Low Parish Council is calling on residents, passionate about their community to stand in the local elections in 2019.

What do councillors do?

Councillors are the champions of their community and give residents a voice on the decisions the council makes. Becoming a councillor will allow you to make a real difference in your community by engaging with residents, local groups and businesses to find out their needs; making decisions on which services and projects the council should take forward; and getting involved locally to ensure the services are meeting your community’s needs.

How long does it take?

The National Association of Local Councils (NALC) Local Councillor Census Survey found that councillors put aside, on average, three hours a week for council work. This often includes attending meetings, engaging with residents and speaking on behalf of the council to other bodies.

Can I stand?

There are only a few rules to stand for election. You must be:

  • A British citizen, or a citizen of the Commonwealth, or the European Union
  • 18 years of age or older
  • Live in an area that is served by a local council

How can I get involved?

Holme Low Annual Parish Meeting

The Holme Low Annual Parish meeting is to take place on Tuesday 18 April 2017 at 7.30pm in Silloth Community Hall, Petteril Street, Silloth.

The Annual Parish Meeting differs from the quarterly Parish Council meetings as it is a meeting of Parish electors which takes place in April each year. Electors can contribute to the agenda of this meeting by contacting the Clerk prior to the meeting. It is an opportunity to discuss local activities and current issues in the community.

Changes to 60 E Bus Service

We now have details of a replacement service to be offered by Ellenvale Coaches on the route.

The new 60E timetable is attached.

The new services will start on Monday 30th January 2017, following the withdrawal of the current Reay’s service on the Saturday 28th.

Please note the results of these changes are:

· Increased frequency
· No service to Skinburness on Saturdays
· Extends to Dearham, Sun Inn and Town Croft now served by Service 60 to Maryport
