We currently have a vacancy for a Town Councillor.

An election has not been called so the Town Council is able to co-opt a new councillor.

If you are interested in applying to become a councillor please contact the Town Clerk (Amanda) on 01507 522957 or e-mail

 Your principal or only place of work in the previous 12 months has been in the Parish of Horncastle
 You have resided either in the Parish of Horncastle or within 3 miles thereof during the whole of the previous 12 months.
