Margaret Lakin-Whitworth has again been re-elected Market Rasen’s Parish Champion.

The honorary role involves being a point of contact for parishioners and “the eyes and ears” of Market Rasen Town, West Lindsey District and Lincolnshire County Councils.

The town councillor has had the role for at least 5-6 years, “ever since it started,” she said.

“It’s a West Lindsey initiative. Anybody with any queries can come to me instead of going to the councils. Because I am in the Air Ambulance Shop, it’s easy for people to see me,” Coun Lakin-Whitworth explained.

Commenting on her re-appointment, Town Mayor John Matthews praised his fellow town councillor for her voluntary work.

“She does tremendous work at the air ambulance shop. She’s a very caring person. She maintains the war memorial and ensures there’s fresh flowers on it,” he said.
