Co-opted Councillors now selected..

The newly elected Town Council members met on Monday 10th June, to select three candidates to co-opt into the Herschell, Thames and Highlands Ward vacancies.

Eight members of the public applied for the 3 vacancies; the Town Clerk was thrilled to have so many local people eager to support and represent their community.

The successful candidates were Emma Smith who will fill the Highlands Ward vacancy and Damian O’Boyle who will fill the Herschell Ward vacancy; the Council were also very excited to welcome Andrew Wilkins, their youngest ever councillor, who at just age 19 will be representing Thames Ward.

The Town Council welcome their newly co-opted council members, and are looking forward to moving ahead with a full Council administration.
