Claire Logan has been co-opted to fill a vacancy on the parish council created by the resignation of Ian Robson, who has left the village.
Claire, who is married with one daughter, grew up in Hemingby. Having left for a short time, she moved back to the village a few years ago.
She said she felt becoming a councillor would give her a chance to put something back into the community that has provided her with some of her best childhood memories.
A further vacancy has been created as a result of the resignation of Will Grover, who has left the village.
