Do you have what it takes to be a Town Councillor? Spilsby Town Council wants to hear from you.
So many people have ideas for how the Town should be run on Facebook but are unwilling to put themselves forward or have big misconceptions about what the role involves, and now it is your chance to put your money where your mouth is.
If you feel that you could represent your community and make a difference to the lives of people within the town you could be just the person the Council needs.
Spilsby Town Council is currently seeking candidates for co-option into an available position on the Town Council. Contrary to the belief of many, the role of Town Councillor is voluntary and unpaid.

- During the whole of the previous 12 months occupied as a tenant or owner of any land or other premises in the Parish of Spilsby; or
- Have had your principal or only place of work in the previous 12 months in the Parish of Spilsby; or
- Have resided either in the Parish or within 3 miles thereof during the previous 12 months.
