By election due in Midhurst

A BY election is to be called in Midhurst after West Sussex county councillor Nola Hendon announced she is to resign on July 31 and move to Minorca with her husband Peter.

She wished the council good fortune in the future and said she had enjoyed working on their behalf.

Colin Hughes thanked her for her work particularly in ensuring Midhurst became part of the new South Downs National Park and also for working to keeping the new school building in Midhurst.
