New councillor

Dairy farmer Jamie Blackmore has joined Clayhidon Parish Council. He was the only candidate to put his name forward before the deadline of 4 November.
Jamie, of Culmcott, Clayhidon, revives a long family tradition by becoming the fourth generation of Blackmore in 50 years to serve on the council. His great grandfather John and his grandfather Tom were both chairmen and his uncle Richard was also a member for a few years.
He fills the vacancy created by Alex Hill’s resignation. Nick Sanderson, Mid Devon’s returning officer, said he had been validly nominated and in the absence of any challenger declared him to have been elected without a contest. Jamie’s election brings the number of Clayhidon’s parish councillors who are farmers to five out of seven.
