Parish Council Advisory

I hold the Certificate in Local Council Administration (CiLCA) from the Society of Local Council Clerks. I am a freelance consultant with the Leicestershire & Rutland Association of Parish Councils.

My work with parish councils has included interim clerk support for a new council, recreation grounds and cemeteries management, setting-up allotments, steering neighbourhood planning groups, applying for s106 and other community grants and creating community resilience plans.

I compile reports, business plans and strategic documents for submission to other local authorities.

I also advise on working with the broadcast and print media, using social media to engage with parishioners, protecting and developing local heritage assets and running community-managed libraries.
