A new Ludlow town councillor and a battle for the Whitcliffe ward

Congratulations to Rod Naysmith from Downton View who has been elected to represent Clee View on Ludlow Town Council unopposed. In the town centre ward of Whitcliffe, there will be an election. Phillip Adams from Corve Street will stand against Hillary Hall from The Angel. For those of you who live in the ward, election day is 20 February. Please vote. Our town council does a lot for our town and must do more as Shropshire Council plans to do less. If the candidates for Whitcliffe Ward would like to send me a pitch on why they would make a good town councillor, I will be glad to publish it. Meanwhile, we should thank councillors Tony Mahalski and Nicola Paton who resigned for personal reasons.

Two Ludlow Town Council councillors resign and Ludlow Town Council advertises for replacements

If you want to become a Ludlow Town Councillor, you have until 22 January to apply. This follows the resignations of Councillors Tony Mahalski and Nicola Paton. Their departures have created vacancies in two wards, Whitcliffe and Clee View. The rules for the applications are set out on the town council’s website. Ludlow Town Council achieves a lot for our town. It’s a voice for the people who live here. It makes grants to community groups. It maintains some of the town’s open spaces and play areas. It runs the market. It works hard to ensure that Ludlow’s voice is heard across Shropshire and beyond. Toilets and much more.
