Parish elections: vacancies still in Randwick

Turnout was very low in Whiteshill and Ruscombe for the election yesterday - not much over a 100 was one suggestion - disappointing but I am not sure if folk really know the candidates - I have suggested that next time candidates put details of themselves on the Parish Council website so that folk who don't know them have a better idea of who to vote for...anyway results soon!

In Randwick the elections went uncontested. Five candidates were nominated for the nine seats. Jane Godsell, David Preece, Mort Watkins, Mike Woods and Vernon Williams were declared elected and form the new Parish Council. However that leaves 4 vacancies - see here if you are interested in joining the Parish. In fact I'm talking to someone later today who is interested in standing - I'm not on the Parish Council myself but attend their meetings when they don't clash with District meetings.

If you are willing to put yourself forward please write to the Clerk by June 9th. Applicants are asked to state in the letter what skills and experience they would bring to the council.

The applicant's name must appear on the current electoral register or the applicant should during the whole of the twelve months preceding the relevant date have resided in or within three miles of the parish or the applicant’s only place of work during the whole of the twelve months preceding the relevant date is in the parish. Write to The Clerk, Randwick Parish Council, Rising Sun Cottage, Randwick, GL6 6HT
