Following the resignation of Cllr Bob Gallagher, who has now moved out of the area, an advert was displayed on noticeboards and on the website for a new Parish Councillor. Three people came forward and expressed an interest but only one person formally applied for the position. That person was Mark Clifford of Lodge Lane, Singleton.
At the Parish Council meeting held on 26 July, Cllr Lee proposed that Mr Clifford be co-opted onto the Parish Council. Cllr Bailey seconded this and it was unanimously agreed. Cllr Clifford was then formally welcomed onto the Parish Council.
