Kintbury parish council election taking place today (Thursday)

A VACANT seat at Kintbury Parish Council is now up for grabs with votes being taken for the two candidates today (Thursday).

Jon Hemphill, of Elizabeth Gardens, Kintbury, and Andrew Stott, of Winding Wood, are both standing for the seat made vacant last month.

Andrew Stott, aged 25, previously stood as the candidate for the Patriotic Socialist Party in the General Election and served as a councillor on Enborne and Bucklebury parish councils between 2009 and 2013.

Now he is representing the newly-formed British People’s Party, founded just last month.

Retired Bayer employee Jon Hemphill, aged 62, is the second candidate in the election. 

Mr Hemphill is the chairman of Inkpen Spartans Football Club and an organiser of the annual Ray Boxshall Orienteering Fun Day.

The polling station is at Kintbury's Coronation Hall, Inkpen Road and results are expected to be announced early tomorrow (Friday) by West Berkshire Council's Returning Officer.
