Local and Borough Council elections take place on Thursday 2nd May

All this week on MIX56 we’re having a special spotlight on local elections with some special guests lined up.

Do you know what your local Parish Council does?  How is your Council Tax used to pay for local services – and who is responsible for things like bin collections and pot holes?

Do you want to make a difference in your local community?

All these questions and more all this week!  You can listen again right here:

Mike Amesbury, Weaver Vale Runcorn MP

Jackie Weaver on MIX56

Jackie Weaver

Jackie became an overnight sensation following THAT notorious Handforth Parish Council meeting in 2021.

She’s now Chief Officer of the Cheshire Association of Local Councils (ChALC) and inspires people to get involved with local government.

We had a lovely chat with Jackie, on Zoom – of course!
