Parish Council Vacancy

The Parish Council has a vacancy for a Councillor.  Great Yarmouth Borough Council issued a notice giving members of the electorate the opportunity to request a Poll in order to fill the vacancy however this was not requested so Council will now be tasked with Co-opting someone to join the Parish Council.

If you have ever considered getting involved as a Councillor then please do have a discussion with the Clerk on 01493 749938 or clerk@martham.gov.uk or any current Councillor.

It is a very good way to be involved in your village and you really can make a difference.
