The event is designed to find out what it takes to become a local councillor. Councillors come from all walks of life, age groups and backgrounds, and play a key role in shaping the future of their local communities.

Anyone with a genuine interest in what happens in Blaby District, and who want to represent their local community is welcome to come along to find out more. There is no requirement to be a member of a political party to attend

With District Elections for the 2019-2023 term on Thursday 02 May 2019, residents will have the opportunity to find out more about all aspects of being a Councillor including:

  • The nomination process and standing for election
  • The role of a Councillor – what is expected
  • Support available from the Council, including allowances and training

Councillor Terry Richardson, Leader of Blaby District Council, said: "This event, including the ones being held around the County will provide an ideal opportunity for those interested in representing their community as a local councillor.

"We will highlight what life as a councillor is like and the positive difference you can make to your community, and we look forward to welcoming you to the event."

Additional events will be held across the County and in early 2019 for anyone unable to attend the 27 October event.
