Local Elections -Thursday 2 May 2019

Since the arrival of polling cards a week or so ago, a number of people have been in touch to ask who/what is up for election. Below is an explanation sent on behalf of the Parish Council.

Local Elections across the Derbyshire Dales and other local authorities in England will be held on Thursday 2 May 2019. In these elections voters will choose who represents them on Parish, Town and District Councils.

In Elton specifically, a ballot will be held to elect your District Councillor only.

There are two candidates in this election…

1 Charlie Foster-Philips (Labour Party Candidate)

2 Colin Swindell (Independent)

Elton and Gratton residents can cast their vote in Elton Village Hall between 7am and 10pm on Thursday 2 May.

Normally you would also be electing your representatives for the Parish Council, however, no ballot will take place this time round.

There are 6 seats on Elton Parish Council and 6 candidates put their names forward. As there are not more candidates than seats, an election is not required.

The 6 candidates for the Parish Council who have been elected unopposed are…

1 John Moseley

2 Colin Swindell

3 Nigel Mason

4 Maralyn Marsden

5 Cath Dawe

6 Clare Jackson

I hope that this makes the situation clear. If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Sent on behalf of Elton Parish Council

Everybody is invited to Elton Village Hall this Easter Monday for refreshments. On offer will be tea, coffee, sandwiches and cake.

The event is being held between 11:30am and 2:30pm. All proceeds will go to Elton All Saints Church.

Following a community collection in Elton and Winster for retiring postman of 25 years, Peter Wheeldon has sent a message of thanks to local residents.

A total of £1650 was raised and presented to Pete along with numerous cards and well wishes.

A heartfelt thank you message was presented in a card through Winster Post Office and put on display in the Village Shop and noticeboards.

In case you haven’t seen it, here is the message from one much loved, missed and grateful postman.

‘A big THANK YOU to the people of WINSTER AND ELTON for your kind wishes and cards and the fantastic much appreciated gift I have received from you.

I am very humbled and was left speechless at your extremely kind generosity and for still thinking of me.

I thank you all so much for your friendship and helpfulness over the last 25 years and will miss delivering the mail to you but won’t miss the bad weather!

Many, many grateful thanks from PETE THE POSTMAN & family’
