Please be our new Parish Councillor – yes, please, YOU.. it’s urgent, now:

Please would you stand for election to our Packington Parish Council?

PLEASE?  By This Friday 22nd June at 4 pm?

OR, please would you nominate a friend or neighbour?

You have until this Friday, 22nd June 2018, at 4pm, to deliver your nomination and consent forms to District Council at Coalville – and there’s FREE  parking outside the District Council Offices there, to help you.  That’s THIS COMING FRIDAY.  Yes, by 4 pm.

Packington Post has already published the forms pack for you – at http://packington.info/bloggle/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/02a-Nomination-Pack-Parish.pdf

All the other information you need is here, on this prior Packington Post page. It tells you what you need to be, to stand. It also tells you what you mustn’t be, to stand. Other really gripping stuff is there, too.  Meanwhile, the official Notice of Election is copied at the bottom of this page, and a photo of it is at right.

Please – print off those forms, NOW.

If you stand, get two neighbours to propose you and second you, and sign that you consent. If you nominate someone else, they just need to consent to being nominated and you can get a third person to second them.  At Coalville, the people in the legal services department at District Council are just SO HELPFUL – if you have any doubts about form-filling, they’ll advise you. They’re happy to look up your electoral number for you. They’ll talk over any queries you have – phone them in advance, on 01530 454503, ask for “Democratic Services”. Then, just DELIVER THOSE FORMS to them, BY FRIDAY. Yes, by 4pm on Friday. Yes, THIS FRIDAY. Yes, FREE PARKING for 30 minutes outside.

Please Stand. Help us have a strong, balanced Parish Council.

Please?
