No parish elections in our area

    Hello. Just thought I would briefly introduce myself as a new member of Woodborough Parish Council. I have kept a rather low profile since moving to the area some 18 months ago but been interested in local matters. My main interests are representing the Moor Lane area (where I reside)and in keeping local services viable. I have no experience regarding local government and know I will be on a steep learning curve, but am looking forward to the challenge and serving the local community the best way I can.
