Election 2022 Leaflet

Hello Everyone

 As you may be aware the Parish Council Elections are being held on 05th May 2022 at Porlock Village Hall.

Previously in the 2019 election a few of the candidates got together and produced a leaflet which listed the candidates standing for Election and provided a brief description of who they are and why they  believe they can help their community.  The leaflets were then distributed to all houses locally prior to election day.  Plans are again in place to produce a leaflet noting some of the potential candidates, if you would like to stand for election and participate in the leaflet please contact the Lovelace Centre on porlocknewsletter@gmail.com or 01643 863350. All submissions to be sent in by the 08th April 2022.  Please note a small fee will be required for the production of the leaflet.

If you have any questions relating to the Election please contact the Clerk on porlockpc@gmail.com
