   Four new Councillors co-opted    6 April, 2014

Four new Parish Councillors have been co-opted after a rare quadruple-voting process.

The rules governing co-options are very precise and involve filling each vacancy in turn, with as many rounds of voting for each vacancy as are needed (with the lowest scoring candidate being eliminated after each round), continuing until one candidate achieves an absolute majority of the votes cast.

The new Councillors are Peter Mason, Mark Oxley, Mrs Pat Scrivener and Frank Wilkinson, and will be able to take up their positions at the next Parish Council meeting on 22nd April.

The entire Parish Council is up for election in May 2015 as part of the regular 4-year cycle.
