Amanda M Hunt resigns

Amanda Hunt

It is with regret that we have to report that Councillor Amanda M Hunt has resigned for personal reasons from Fairfield Parish Council (FPC) with immediate effect.

Amanda was elected to the council in February 2018 at a by-election and has worked tirelessly on behalf of FPC. She became Vice Chair in May 2019. During her time on the council,  she took the lead on Planning and played a big part in negotiations and discussions with CBC on our successful Article 4 applications to conserve the look and feel of Fairfield. She was also involved in many projects including the Telephone Box Library, Christmas Lights and organising the celebrations for VE Day which sadly got cancelled due to the Covid-19 Pandemic.

The council will be asked to consider a motion thanking her for her services at the September meeting.

Central Bedfordshire Council (CBC) has issued the official notice of a vacancy (please click here to view). If by 27th September 2021 a request for an election to fill this vacancy is made in writing to the Returning Officer at CBC by ten electors, an election will be held to fill the said vacancy, otherwise the vacancy will be advertised and filled by co-option.
