Two of the Council's long standing councillors, Dennis Parke and Judith Furniss, recently stood down from the Council at the end of their term of office. At the meeting of the Council on 4 May, Maggi Hunt, the Council's Chair, praised their contributions to the work of the Council and their commitment to the residents of Stocksfield.

The new Parish Council which is formed after the unopposed elections includes the remaining councillors from the last term and adds Mr Colin Chance (who was also co-opted at the meeting on 4 May) and Mrs Anne Dale. The Council’s website will be amended in the near future.

Three vacancies remain on the Council and if any resident is interested in being co-opted onto the Council, please contact the Clerk or the Chair and refer to the Council’s co-option policy (click here).
