Ang Teague (Chair)

I moved to Mileham in 2017 and became a councillor in 2020. I am a wife to Ron and have two daughters 17 years and 9 years. I am also a foster carer. I have worked with children and young people for over 30 years and also volunteer for a Dog Rescue in my spare time. I have numerous pets and often meet other villagers as I walk my dogs in our lovely village.

I moved to the village in November 2003 and reside with my husband and two Norfolk Terriers. Professionally, I am a qualified accountant, tax adviser & estate planner.

I enjoy the peacefulness of the village and have always lived rurally since I moved to Norfolk

in 1988. I am a novice but keen gardener; enjoy reading and dog walking!

I decided to join the Parish Council to help to provide another viewpoint on local issues.

The Role of a Councillor

 

They are elected to represent the interest of the local community as a whole and promote a harmonious local environment. The number of elected Councillors depends on the size of the area, in Mulbarton we are able to have 13 Councillors.

 

Local Councils are the first tier of governance and are the first point of contact for anyone concerned with a community issue. They are democratically elected local authorities and exist in England, Wales and Scotland. The term 'Local Council' is synonymous with ' Parish Council, 'Town Council' and 'Community Council'.

 

Local Councils are made up of locally elected Councillors. They are legally obliged to hold at least four meetings a year.  Most meet on a monthly cycle to discuss council business and hear from local residents.  District and County Councillors regularly attend parish meetings and report at the Annual Parish meeting. Councillors are expected to attend meetings on a regular basis.​

Councillors must abide by a Code of Conduct, a set of rules on how Councillors are expected to behave. They must also declare their financial interests in the parish, details of which are kept by the District Council.
