One Down, One To Go
Back in May, at the four-yearly PC elections, there were only five nominations for the seven places on Denton Parish Council.
When this happens, and it often does (the same situation arose in 2014), the five who have been elected, unopposed, have the ability to co-opt other people to fill the vacant positions.
At last week's DPC meeting, they duly did this by co-opting Robert Fearnley of Manor Farm to join them. Congratulations and thanks to Robert.
We understand the Council hope to fill the second, and final, place at their next meeting in September. Any Denton resident over the age of 18 is entitled to put their name forward. How about you?
