Candidates announced in by-election

Voters in the Hill Ward of Wisbech will have a chance to go to the poll on Thursday January 17 to vote for a new representative on both the town and district councils.

A vacancy on both authorities arose following the recent death of long-serving councillor Bruce Wegg.

There are three candidates standing for each of the two positions.

Hoping for election to the district council are: Samantha Hoy (Conservative), Dean Reeves (Labour) and John White (Independent).

For town council the candidates are: Dean Reeves (Labour), Michelle Tanfield (Conservative) and John White (independent).

Polls are open from 7am to 10pm at the Salvation Army Citadel in John Thompson Road.
