The local council for the Civil Parish of Charley consists of five members who are elected or co-opted from residents of the area or those who have working connections with the Parish. Mr Brian Duncombe is employed as part time Clerk to the Council.

The Parish Council meets every other month at 7.30 p.m. in the Oaks Storer Hall, Oaks in Charnwood (next to the Church of St James the Greater). All are welcome to attend the meetings.

The Parish Council is responsible for the provision and maintenance of benches and notice boards at strategic points in the parish and much of the Council's effort is concerned with protecting the unique environment of Charley, disseminating information from North West Leicestershire District Council, Leicestershire County Council and local news and events via this web site and the bi-annual Parish Newsletter.

Interested in Working in Adult Learning?

The Parish Council has been asked to publicise the following event:

Careers Fair for promote opportunities to work in Adult Learning

There are three events taking place in the City and County to try and attract applicants to roles working in Adult Learning, in both Leicestershire and in the City. Both the City and the County are experiencing challenges with Tutor recruitment (and other roles, such as volunteers, Learning Support Assistants, Business Support staff, invigilators etc.) Three events are being held (one in the City and two in the County) to promote careers in Adult Learning, as follows: More »

Wednesday 27th March, 2.00pm – 7.00pm at Leicester Adult Learning (City Centre)

Thursday 4th April, 2.00pm – 6.00pm at Enderby Adult Learning Centre in Enderby

Thursday 11th April, 2.00pm – 7.00pm at the Moira Centre in Loughborough

We would really appreciate any support to publicise the events so people can find out about what opportunities exist working in Adult Learning, across the City and County. There will hopefully be lots of stallholders including Teacher Training organisations; student finance; mentoring for qualified tutors new to Adult Learning etc.

We will also be offering free information, advice and guidance, as well as sharing information about live and upcoming vacancies across all our different curriculums in both the City and County. We have live vacancies now with more available in the summer for work in the Autumn term.

It's a drop-in so people can come any time between these times.

If you are interested in attending any of these events, or have any questions/queries, please contact:
