Voters were called to the Village Hall yesterday with results as follows:

- KEEFFE, Peter (Independent) 410 - Elected

- STOUT, Frederick Norman (Unaligned) 253 - Elected

- RHODES, Terrence Anthony (Independent) - 252

It was Mr Keeffe’s second attempt this year to join the Chapel St Leonards Parish Council after an unsuccessful bid in February, when Brian Dear was co-opted, only to resign soon afterwards in a row over the council’s co-option policy.

Coun Rae Rigby resigned at the same meeting, followed by Coun Lawrence Radley.
