Vacancy!

My name is Patrick Vandesteen and I am the new chair of the Batheaston Parish Council.  In my first post, I want to ask you to consider joining the council as a Councillor.

I know that the first reaction of many of you will be “oh no, thank you”.  But with societal and climate change, the agenda of a parish council has and is changing.  A lot.  Our priorities now are how to help improve resilience of community, infrastructure, nature conversation, clean energy, mobility, etc.  And we have much larger budgets and access to grants than ever before to make things happen.  The picture here is of an idea to have an Alice Park-like green space for the community along Coalpit Road.  This specific idea may or may not come to pass, but it is a good example of what can be on the agenda.

No idea can go anywhere without a group of Councillors who can get things imagined and organised with the community.  We have 5 vacancies at the moment and we’d love to find new members that can help us make competent and balanced decisions.  Please see the details below.  

Hopefully see you there soon! Patrick
