Time For Action


Are you a volunteer? Do you want to make a difference where you live? Have you got an idea to improve Formby?

Now is the 'time for action'
. Every Town and Parish Council across England and locally here in Formby will be up for election this May. There are 15 seats (elected members) on Formby Parish Council and 7 seats available on Little Altcar Parish Council. Not one of the existing Councillors has a right to stay unchallenged.

In my view, if you can't name your local Parish Councillor then you should choose someone else. They've had 4 years in office, it's 4 years of governing local life at the most immediate level.

If you don't know them by name or action by now they've failed you and it's time for new potentially more active and imaginative replacements.

Why not you?

Here's a recent Twitter from Lydiate Parish Council seeking new volunteers from within their community. Both our local Councils should be doing the same. The elections are in May and any resident can stand. It costs nothing all you need is ten signatures of support from your neighbours.
