Council seeking four new members after resignations, with three to be chosen at by election on February 7.

AN election will be held at Instow on Thursday of next week (February 7) following the resignation of four parish councillors.

Three seats are being contested in the by-election following the resignation of Stewart White, Peter Cook and Ben Thomas, all citing personal reasons.

Polling will take place at All Saints Community Centre in Anstey way, Instow, with candidates Michael Champion, Bob Harrison, Shooey Maccall and Will Vandersteen standing for election.

Since the by-election was called, a fourth councillor, Charlie Harper, has also resigned for personal reasons.

Notices have been posted and an election will be held by February 14 if requested by 10 electors of the parish.
