Vacancy for a Councillor

Cllr Zoe O’Sullivan is soon to move out of the parish and has had to resign from the parish council which creates a vacancy.  Zoe was publicly thanked at the Annual Village Meeting for all her great work this past couple of years and now we need to fill the vacancy.  First there has to be a period of 14 business days from today until 29th October during which ten electors can request an election by writing to the Returning Officer at Rother District Council.  If there is no such request then the parish council can fill the vacancy by co-opting someone.  If you think you would be interested in becoming a parish councillor then please contact the parish clerk (Brian Holdstock) at  clerk@ashburnham-penhurst.net or calling 07836 716723.
