I just wanted to remind you to let your Councillors and prospective Candidates know that we are holding the 3 briefings in March at the following:
Daventry District Council – Monday 23rd March at 5.30pm (Lodge Road Council Chamber)
If you were lucky enough to attend the training that NALC ran this morning at Wellingborough you will know most of what we will be advising you. However, if you can make it to the meeting it will be really helpful for you and your Councillors etc.
If anyone from your parish cannot make any of the briefings, it is important to let you know that nominations must be delivered by hand. You or your councillors can make an appointment with us to informally check the papers but these appointments will fill up quickly so I advise you to contact us as early as possible. Please can you email firstname.lastname@example.org to make an appointment or call us on 01327 302507/311/321. Appointment times are from Monday 30th March to 8th April between 10am and 4pm (excluding the weekend).
If nomination papers have been handed in without an appointment then prospective candidates take their chances that the papers are correctly completed. If they are not, then they will have to complete a new paper and deliver it again to us or come back to add anything that has been missed.
The nomination pack we would like you to use is attached so that you can print it (both in Word and PDF). They will also be available at the briefings. If you are unable to print or unable to come to the meeting, then we can send them to you. Please let us know if you would like them posting by using the email address above.
Good luck and please let us know if you have any queries.
