Due to Corsham Town Council wards being uncontested in the local elections, there are three vacancies for councillors which will now be filled by co option. Two vacancies are available in Corsham Neston Ward and one in Corsham Ladbrook Ward. These are interesting and valuable roles and an opportunity to be involved in making decisions about what happens in the town. Details of the vacancies can be found at the links below:
Corsham Town Council has a vacancy for a Councillor in Corsham Pickwick Ward. If you are interested in becoming a Councillor, details can be found on the Notice of Vacancy.
We are now welcoming enquiries for bookings from September. To ensure we keep within government guidelines to keep everyone safe, including our staff who work in the building, we have reduced our capacity and are adding a small extra charge for additional cleaning. Please get in touch if you would like to discuss your event. We very much look forward to welcoming back our hirers.
