A Suffolk council is seeking volunteers to join its ranks and give something back to their community.

Framlingham Town Council has made the appeal after reporting vacancies.

Town clerk Eileen Coe said to role was voluntary and subject to certain regulations.

“But it is very rewarding to give something back to the community and help improve the quality of life here and be involved in making decisions on important issues which affect the town,” she added.

Mrs Coe suggested that if people were wondering whether they had what it takes to become a councillor “the answer is probably yes”.

“You don’t need any qualifications, except an interest in the town and the time to attend meetings and other occasional activities,” she added.

Applicants must also be 18 years or over and live or work within three miles of Framlingham. Contact Mrs Coe on 01728 720183 or email for more information.
