At the August meeting of the Parish Council it was minuted that Barry Bryan, Mill Street was co-opted as a Parish Councillor to serve until the next elections.

Introductory note from Barry
I am a retired teacher and IT manager, and with my wife, Margaret, and youngest son, William, have lived in Mill Street for the last 7 years. I am quite keen on DIY and have spent a considerable amount of time on repairing/improving our cottage. Margaret and I are keen walkers and in particular, we like walking in mountainous country and can also be seen regularly walking around the village countryside. Since we retired we have visited 22 countries and hiked in some of the most beautiful scenery in the world. I am quite keen on photography and use it as a means of supplementing my trip diaries when travelling and when looking back on a trip in later years.
PS Editorial note:- Barry and Margaret are keen entrants in and supporters of the Packington Post Photograph competition at the annual Horticultural Show and have submitted some stunning shots in past years from their world trips as well as from the local area.
