ON behalf of Uplyme Parish Council I would like to thank all those who took the time and trouble to vote in the recent election, especially at a time when there is much dissatisfaction with national politics.
Local democracy is extremely important and often undervalued. I congratulate the successful candidates and would also like to thank Mr Bill Trundley for his desire to join us on the parish council in working for the benefit of the parish.
What the election did highlight is the fact that some people do not know what a parish council does and where it has influence or none. It is therefore the intention to increase the council profile on both social media and within local publications to better inform our parishioners.
The parish council meets on the second Wednesday of every month in Uplyme Village Hall and all are welcome to attend.
Councillor Chris James
Chairman, Uplyme Parish Council
