Councillor Vacancy Branston & Mere Parish Council

 

Branston and Mere Parish Council has vacancies for two people to join the Parish Council. The vacancies have arisen due to the resignations of Cllr Mark Blair and Cllr Richard Naulls who have served on the council for many years, providing great public service to our community. We are sad to lose both Marc and Richard from our team but wish them well for the future and thank them on behalf of their colleagues, friends and parishioners for his service.
