As in election of Parish Councillors for the Parish of Wing one of the candidates, Lyndon Curley, failed to return his signed application by the prescribed date, his original election was declared invalid.
This left an unfilled position on the Parish Council. Under local government rules if more than 10 electors put their wishes in writing to the Returning Officer then a second election has to be held.
This time there was a new candidate, SusannahFish, who stood against LyndonCurley . The election was held on Thursday 12 September 2019.
The result was as follows:

Anne Thomson and Joanne Beaver rounded up the funds and set in train the obtaining and organisation of the Defibrillator for the village. It is housed in the old telephone box purchased by our perspicacious Parish Council.
If you place a 999 call from the telephone box or your mobile for medical help, and if you need the defibrillator the operator will give you the code to unlock the equipment.
Little, if any, training is required to use it so in an emergency “I’m not trained to use it!” is NOT a valid excuse . However rehearsal can boost the confidence, The equipment speaks to the person using it and instructs on the various actions to be taken. Seconds count!
Whatever you do you can do NO damage to the patient. And it may be family or a friend who is the victim – it could even be ME!
YOU COULD SAVE A LIFE!
Even though training is NOT required it is a good idea to take one of the periodic classes in the Village Hall which are announced here.
