  1. We seem to have missed the sad death of Roy Gill LibDem councillor for Bethel ward on Restormel DC . The notice of vacancy was published on 11th August .

  2. My previous post seems to have got lost. There’s a vacancy in Wrexham, Rossett ward, following the death of a conservative councillor.

  3. There will probabky be a double byelection in Hale End and Highams Park ward of Waltham Forest LBC . Noel Penstone LibDem councillor has resigned because of serious ill health .
