12. Run for Town/Parish Council
The Conservative Party pride themselves on having the most local councillors. Becoming a councillor isn't a huge commitment and like many volunteer roles it's what you make of it. I'd say a local council might take 10 hours a month; this can be a huge commitment if you're working full time.
Many local councils aren't contested by election instead lots of local councils co-opt members of the community. I get the impression that a lot of these councils are "clubs". (I must stress not through anyone I've met.)
This blog will be created by members of the Exec committee or by local Labour Councillors on topics of interest to the St Austell & Newquay Labour Party
