At the parish council meeting on Thursday 6 September, the council voted to appoint Louise Stoddart to fill the current vacancy. Louise says “I have been living in Pitstone for 7 years on the Castlemead Estate. I decided to join the Parish Council as I wanted to use my spare time to be able to give back to the community and make a difference for the future of Pitstone. My career with the Building Engineering Services Association, means I can use my expertise in planning, building and commercial activities in the Parish. I look forward to meeting more fellow residents and welcoming everyone to future meetings.” We warmly welcome Louise to the council.
