This week East Northamptonshire Council (ENC) welcomed a new Chairman for the next Civic Year.
On 16 May Cllr Wendy Brackenbury, a district councillor for Thrapston and Islip, took over from outgoing chairman, Cllr Colin Wright, at the Annual Meeting of the Council for 2018/19
Cllr Brackenbury has been a district councillor since 2003 and is currently a Ward Member for Thrapston Lakes Ward. She is also a county councillor for the Thrapston division, and has been since 2013.
Her consort is her husband, Cllr David Brackenbury.
Cllr Brackenbury said: “It will be a privilege to represent the district as a whole, and the work of the Council, at events over the coming year.
“I look forward to getting out and about to meet people and explore various places across East Northants and further afield.
“We have some lovely towns and villages in our district and it will be a pleasure to visit them and meet with local communities.”
Cllr Brackenbury will be organising a variety of events over the next 12 months to raise as much money as possible for her chosen charities - Pancreatic Cancer UK and Northamptonshire Search and Rescue.
District councillor for Stanwick Ward, Cllr Helen Howell, was named as Vice-Chairman for this year.
