Your chance to find out how to be a councillor

If you’re thinking of standing as a councillor in May’s Worcester City Council and parish council elections, you won’t want to miss a special briefing session on March 18.

The event at the Guildhall will give prospective candidates – and their potential agents – all the essential information they need to know.

Starting at 6pm, the evening will run through essentials like how to complete nomination papers, how much can be spent on campaigning, how postal votes work and much more. Free nomination packs will be available on the night to take away.

There will also be a West Mercia Police officer on hand to discuss the dangers of electoral fraud.

The session is open to anyone interested in standing as a candidate for the council or acting as an agent. More details are available by contacting the Council’s Electoral Services Team at

This year’s City Council election will take place on May 2. Councillors will be elected in the Arborteum, Bedwardine, Cathedral, Claines, Nunnery, St Clement, St John, St Peter’s, St Stephen, Warndon Parish North and Warndon Parish South wards.

There will also be polls for the parish councils in Warndon and St Peter’s, if sufficient numbers of candidates are nominated.
