Councillor Vacancy – Aberford Ward

It is with regret the Parish Council advises it accepted the resignation of Cllr Daniel Overend recently. The members of ADPC would like to thank Dan for his contributions to the parish during his time as a councillor.

The Parish Council therefore has one vacancy for a parish councillor, in the Aberford Ward.
