PARISH COUNCILLOR VACANCY

We currently have a vacancy that we are looking to fill by co-option. We invite anyone who is interested in being considered to notify the clerk via e-mail or post. In particular we would like to hear of any specific skills or interests that you believe would benefit our group.

The position is unpaid and includes approximately 11 meetings a year, depending on the level of involvement. You would be required to demonstrate all the standards of behaviour that are reasonable to expect of someone in public service. More »

What we can offer is the chance to work with a varied group of people in a non-political atmosphere, the opportunity to practise your skills outside your normal home or business context, an insight into the workings of local government, and above all the potential to make life in Morley better in some way.

A Parish Councillor must be:

  • 18 years or older on the day you become nominated for election
  • for the whole of the 12 months prior to nomination he/she must:

    • resided within 3 miles of the boundary of the parish, or
    • had his/her principal or only place of work in that area

You cannot stand for election if you:

  • are the subject of a bankruptcy restriction order or interim order
  • have, within five years before the day of the election, been convicted in the United Kingdom of any offence and have had a prison sentence (whether suspended or not) for a period of over three months without the option of a fine

Flu Jabs

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 10:03 by Laura Storey

Flu is a common infectious illness spread by coughs and sneezes. It can be very unpleasant, but you'll usually begin to feel better within about a week.

However for young children, people aged over 65, people with long-term health conditions and pregnant women flu can be far more serious.

It can lead to serious health complications including bronchitis, pneumonia and ear infections.

That's why all children in reception class and school years one, two, three and four will be offered a free nasal flu vaccine at school. More »

Younger children aged two and three, older people and pregnant women can receive their free vaccination at their GP's surgery.

Keep you and your family healthy and well this winter by making sure they get their flu vaccination.
