The Parish Council elections begin on 20 March with the publication of the Notice of Election.

The nomination period for councillors runs from Monday 23 March to 4pm on Thursday 9 April.   

Nomination papers can be obtained from the Parish Clerk, Julia Oyston (01845 501098 ) but they cannot be returned to Hambleton District Council until after 23 March.

Elections will take place on Thursday 7 May.


The current Council will stand down on 11 May and all Councillors will retire.

The new Council will begin on 12 May and an Annual Meeting will be held before 25 May - proposal is Wednesday  20th.  The first item of business will be the appointment of a chairman.

So if you care about the future of your community and would like to stand as a councillor you can obtain further details from Julia. 



What is RSS?

RSS (or Really Simple Syndication) is the technical term for a newsfeed.

If you are an "Information Junkie", then RSS is perfect for you. RSS is about getting live web feeds directly to your computer. RSS takes the latest headlines from our website, and pushes those headlines down to your computer for quick scanning. It can also visually inform you when a new news article has been published.

Setting up a RSS Newsfeed is simple but not all web-browsers have an RSS reader built in. To know for sure, simply click on the RSS Feed button above. If you get a new page full of code then it's likely you haven't got a Feed Reader installed. If this is the case we recommend you Google search for a RSS feed reader for your chosen web-browser.
