Newburgh News
Would you like an opportunity to help look after your village and shape its future?
Newburgh Parish Council has the answer

There is a vacancy on the Parish Council following the retirement of Reg Porter who has moved to Leicester. Perhaps you would like to become a member and join the other seven Councillors currently serving the village?
Here’s what we do
The Parish Council’s current programme includes:

All that’s on top of our regular work keeping the village clean and tidy (we have a budget to employ someone to help do this); operating the speed camera; reviewing planning applications for village implications; working with our Borough and County Councils to ensure we get good services from them; providing the Christmas tree and working with the church to hold Carols on the Green; preparing and delivering Newburgh News to help publicise village activities to residents. And more.

 

Here’s how to become a Councillor
