Our candidate for the forthcoming by-election to be held on 3 August is Christine Gay. Chris has lived most of her life in the town, is married and has three adult children. She recently retired from teaching in local schools, and as a founder member of the Guardians, she now wants to contribute more to the community by serving on the Town Council. Her priority is ensuring that local services meet local needs, and she thinks this is best served by representatives who are not part of any national political party.
If you live in North Ward, and are registered to vote, you will have received your polling card by now. Postal votes will be issued shortly, so you can expect them soon too. Your vote is precious and was hard-won by our forebears. Please do use it on the 3rd.
