An opportunity to contribute to the life of the village

Candidate nominations for the 4-yearly election to the Parish Council closed on 4th April 2023. Only 4 candidates put themselves forward for the 11 seats available; therefore those 4 candidates were declared elected (and the new Council took effect from 9th May).

This left 7 vacant seats still to be filled. Anyone interested in being co-opted to one of the vacant seats, or just seeking more information about doing so, is warmly encouraged to contact us please via bamfordwiththornhill-pc.gov.uk/contact-us

We look forward to hearing from you. Thank you.
