Ever thought of joining the Town Council?

Elections are coming in May for the 13 members of Bruton Town Council. If you’ve ever wondered what the Council does, or considered standing yourself, why not come along to a drop in session on Tuesday March 5th and find out more?

The informal session is being held from 4pm to 8pm in the Community Office on the High Street, and current councillors will be on hand to answer any questions.

If you can’t make it, any of the current councillors would be happy to talk to you – see the Meet the Council page for contact information.
