Eastergate voters set to return to polls

A PARISH council election is been held in Eastergate.

Some 13 candidates have decided to stand, and they are Chris Allington, Gordon Bell, Stephanie Bell, John Donabie, Ian Hewitt, Phillipa Hind, Heather Kilroy, John Kilroy, Tony Occleshaw, David Phillips, Jasmine Sparrow, Robert Sparrow and Stephen White.
