The Town Council is looking to co-opt three new members to fill vacancies that have arisen in the North Petherton Ward (2) and the North Newton ward (1). If you live in the area or have a local connection and would like to become a town councillor, please contact our Clerk (tel 01823 431702 or email and he will explain in more detail what is involved and let you have a form to fill in. There are a number of significant issues facing our community at the moment and the Council is determined to play its part in addressing them, (for example by developing a neighbourhood plan), as well as continuing to improve the services that we provide and carrying on the fight to get a fair deal for our communities with regard to services provided by others. To do this we need to be at full strength, so please think seriously about joining us.
