PEOPLE in Ilfracombe have been invited to help make a difference in their community by standing for election to the Town Council on Thursday, May 5.

Town clerk Pauline Williams said the council was providing more opportunities than ever before for residents to make a difference, by “thinking outside the box” and seeking to take charge of its own destiny with a variety of innovative ideas and initiatives.
“Closing date for nominations is April 4 and people really can make a difference by pushing for things within their community,” she said.
