Minster-on-Sea Parish Councillor Elliott Jayes has been recognised on a national level.


Minster-on-Sea Parish Council is very pleased to announce that it has received notification that it will field a finalist in the National Association of Local Councils (NALC) Star Councils 2017.

Here, Cllr. Elliott Jayes has been nominated as one of the final three nominees selected for the ‘Young Councillor of the Year Award’ from thousands sent in from across the country.

Having been democratically elected in 2015 to serve as Minster’s newest and youngest councillor, Elliott achievements to date speak for themselves. His sheer hard work and determination have ensured the problems associated with the inadequate traffic control system at the junction of the A2500 Lower Road and Barton Hill have resulted in the proposed new roundabout scheme and a major investment in improvements works along the route. His work to bring about a play area and trim trial in the Thistle Hill Estate / Community Woodland will benefit the community in the longer term and his ongoing commitment to monitoring the needs of the community and working with the Parish Council to address those needs are all well recognised.

Trish Codrington, Parish Clerk says Elliott is a pleasure to work alongside. Nothing is too much trouble and he will always go the extra mile to get things done. We are all very impressed by Elliott’s commitment and sheer hard work. The standard of finalists is extremely high and we are very proud of Elliott’s achievements in making the final grade. We send him all our best for the final cut!

The overall winner will be announced at the NALC Awards Ceremony in Milton Keynes on 30th October 2017.
