More news, no ads


Voters in a West Norfolk village can go to the polls next month for a by-election to choose a new parish councillor.

But plans for a similar contest in Downham have been scrapped, with the two nominated candidates being elected unopposed.

Residents in Clenchwarton will have the chance to choose a new representative in an election scheduled for Thursday, June 9.

Two candidates – Tamara Koryniaka Beeken and Ray Thornalley – have been nominated to stand.

Voting will take place at the village's Memorial Hall and any resident who is not yet registered to vote has until May 20 to do so in order to have their say.

Postal or proxy vote applications can be made until 5pm on May 23 and May 30 respectively and the result is expected to be announced on June 10, following a count at West Norfolk Council's headquarters in Lynn.

An election had also been arranged for June 9 to fill two vacant seats in the east ward on Downham's town council.

But that has now been scrapped after only two candidates were nominated.

Alisha Marie Buxton and Barry Wiles have been elected unopposed as a result.
