MEET THE PARISH COUNCILLORS
At last - an election for the Parish Council - the first in 16 years. Our commiserations to the two candidates who were not
successful, but no doubt Dennis Kent and George Robinson will have another chance.
No less than eight of the previous Councillors did not stand for re-election; John Earl, Sue Foster, Ceri Griffiths, Karisa Krcmar,
Derek Lowndes, Lilian Middleton, David Mills and Keith Rimmer. They have become familiar to us over the last four years or
more and they will be missed.
Brian Henman told me what a "marvellous team" they had been - the best in his 27 years on the Council. His description was
full of phrases such as "lively debate", "democratic decisions" and praise of them as being "friendly" and "affable". But what
had impressed him the most is that there had been no passengers. Councillors are expected to contribute outside the monthly
meetings and all had done so, without exception. Clearly the new team has a lot to live up to.
Moving on to the present Council, I spoke to all of
them, both old and new, you can read about each one by clicking
on their photo below.
