Councillor David Finch, leader of Essex County Council, said: “Essex is one of the biggest council areas in the country, and councillors play an absolutely vital role in supporting our rich and diverse communities across the county.

“While being a councillor is hugely demanding, the ability to make a difference and give something back to your local community is a wonderful opportunity.

“We have councillors of all ages and backgrounds, and through this event, we hope to give a little bit more information about what is involved in the day to day work of being a county councillor.”

The event will take place on Tuesday, November 17 at 6.30pm via Zoom.
