Bar Hill Parish Council Election - Election Results

Looks like there will be one less piece of paper for us all to worry about come election day on the 22nd May, at least here in Bar Hill. The number of nominations for the Parish Council is equal to the number of vacancies (13).

So here are the results;

Name of Candidate (Home Address) Description (if any)
BURRAGE, Brian John (7 Field View, Bar Hill, Cambridge, CB23 8SX)
DOLAND, John (49, Watermead, Bar Hill, Cambridge, CB23 8TJ) - Independent
HALL, Roger (11 Almond Grove, Bar Hill, Cambridge)
HOWARD, Brian Arthur (135 Pheasant Rise, Bar Hill, Cambs, CB23 8SD)
JENKINS, Sue Deborah (80, Foxhollow, Bar Hill, Cambridge, CB23 8ES)
MITCHELL, Anthony William (139 Pheasant Rise, Bar Hill, Cambs, CB23 8SD)
NELSON, Michael Robert (6 Field View, Bar Hill, Cambridge, CB23 8SX) Retired Engineer
PELLEW, Andy (9 Foxhollow, CB23 8EP) - Liberal Democrat
POPE, Mervyn (148 Hillcrest, Bar Hill, Cambs, CB23 8TH)
SAUNDERS, Anna Christine (1 Hollytrees, Bar Hill, Cambridge, CB23 8SF)
SPENCE, Sandra Jane (22 Oatlands Avenue, Bar Hill, Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, CB23 8EQ)
WATERS, Bunty Elizabeth (77 Foxhollow, Bar Hill, Cambridge, CB23 8ES)
YORK, Jon Patrick (77 Hollytrees, Bar Hill, Cambridge, CB23 8SG)

Brian Burrage, Michael Nelson, and Jane Spence are new and I'm looking forward to meeting them in June when John Doland will also be returning to the Council after a brief break.

John Doland, roger Hall, Brian Howard, Sue Jenkins, Anthony Mitchell, Myself, Mervyn Pope, Anna Saunders, Bunty Waters, and Jon York are all returning Councillors.

In a way I wish there had been an election, as Councillors we will be levelling taxes and spending public money and it's always better when there is a mandate from the electorate. However with 9 of the 13 Councillors continuing (70%) it will be interesting to see how the new members will affect the Council.
