Friday night’s meeting of Hunstanton Town Council co-opted four new members.

It followed a number of resignations from the council that left it well under strength.

The full number on the council should be 17. The town council purely represents Hunstanton but members can live further afield if they have an interest in the town.

The four elected were Glynis Thomson, owner of the Marine Bar, next to The Spinney; Michael Ruston, businessman, of Old Hunstanton, who is involved with the chamber of trade; Daniel Parton, who is a Heacham parish councillor too; and Terry Light, a Hunstanton resident who owns the Rendezvous restaurant in the High Street.

The three unsuccessful candidates on the night were Linza Corp, Amanda Knight and Peter Parsons.

The resignations that necessitated the co-options, were Richard Bird, who stood down to concentrate on his work as a Norfolk county councillor and West Norfolk borough councillor; John Smith, who is heavily involved in this World War One year with Docking Heritage Centre; Lynda Brister and Nicholas Godfrey-Cole, who both resigned due to business and other commitments.
