Could you be a Hertsmere Borough Councillor?
People who want to make a difference in their community can learn how to become a councillor.
Hertsmere Borough Council is running an event for people to find out what councillors do, what skills are needed and how they are paid.
The authority has 15 electoral wards and once elected to a seat, a councillor serves for four years.
Services provided by Hertsmere Borough Council include waste and recycling services, car parking and food hygiene.
Councillor Dr Harvey Cohen, localism portfolio holder and lead for member development, said: "All sorts of people become councillors so regardless of whether you are a working mum, a single dad, a student, a business person or anything else in between, if you want to learn more, please come along.
"The aim is to encourage those who are currently under-represented to come forward - for example young people and women - but anyone with an interest is welcome.
“The open evening will be a great opportunity for people to speak to councillors from different political parties and find out exactly what the role entails.”
The open evening will take place on November 20 from 6pm to 7.30pm at Civic Offices, Elstree Way, Borehamwood.
