We could say that there is something about council by-elections being like number 9 buses. This being Somerset the existence of buses is all but on a par with unicorns, councillors however we know to definitively exist.
Nevertheless just a day after we published details of a by-election to Somerton Town Council, comes news of 2 seats up for grabs in St Thomas’s Ward in the City of Wells. This means the two candidates with the highest number of votes will be elected.
The election will be held (unusually for a UK election – they are usually held on Thursdays) on Friday, 7th February. The candidates put forward are as follows:
Sebastian Alexander Johns
Peter Nicholas Harlow
Eileen Vivian Webber
Sarah Caroline Powell
