This is a final call for anyone interested in being part of Marton Parish Council. If elected you’d commit to a meeting every two months, to help shape decisions on the upkeep and services for the village on a voluntary basis.

Contact Faye Chambers (Chair) for a form (or you can get one directly from Rugby Borough Council). These must be returned to the council offices by Wednesday (3 April) for the forthcoming May election.
