West Norfolk villager 'perplexed' after being twice-rejected from role on parish council
A man who has been twice-rejected from joining a parish council has spoken of his bemusement at the situation.
Philip Wagstaff said when he applied for a councillor role at Methwold Parish Council in July, there were about six vacancies, but when it came to the council’s co-option meeting last week, only he and one other man had applied.
“We were both invited to give a little speech. We effectively said the same thing, that we both live in the area and have got involved with local issues,” Mr Wagstaff said.
