A ROADSHOW is being held, aimed at recruiting future county councillors.

Representatives from Denbighshire County Council will offer information about what the role entitles and brief visitors about the qualities required for the role and the sort of issues faced.

Looking ahead to the roadshow, Cllr Bill Cowie, who has been serving St Asaph for nine years, said: “I am very proud of being a councillor and get a lot of satisfaction from being involved.

“It can be very time consuming and frustrating at times, but I have found it very rewarding.”

Cllr Brian Blakeley, who has represented Rhyl South East since 1999, said: “I’ve thoroughly enjoyed every moment.

“However, I would advise any individual who is considering becoming a councillor to first consider whether or not they can dedicate all of their time to the job.

“I retired before I became town councillor for Rhyl and I was therefore dedicated and able to help with any concerns that the public had.”

The roadshow events will take place at the following locations:

  • Fforddlas Community Centre, Rhyl – Tuesday, January 24.
  • Conference room 1a, County Hall, Ruthin – Tuesday, January 31.
  • Restaurant at the Nova, Prestatyn – Wednesday, February 8.
  • Denbigh Town Hall – Tuesday, February 28.

All events will begin at 7.30pm and will last about two hours.

Those interested in attending the workshops are advised to register by emailing democratic@denbighshire.gov.uk or calling 01824 712589.
