A trio of new faces have joined Market Rasen Town Council.

John McNeil attended his first official meeting since being elected unopposed and James Patton and Cathryn Turner were both co-opted on to the council at last week’s meeting. The town council has now filled all of its vacancies and once again has 12 members.

Former primary school teacher Cathryn didn’t speak at the meeting but has already been quizzing fellow members about the corner of George Street and Queen Street, where the buses turn as she saw a double decker bus hit the canopy of the Advocate Arms, while having coffee there.

Cathryn now says she is busy reading up on issues and filling her diary with various dates for meetings and events.

Retired engineer James Patton says he has already volunteered to help with the Mayor’s Christmas Appeal and is keen to know more about the Town Twinning Association.

“I intend to help with any project I am requested to assist in and raise concerns as they come or are brought to my attention. All of the members made us “newbies” most welcome,” he said.

Town Mayor John Matthews said he was very pleased to have a “full house” again at the council, as it eases 
the workload. ”I am confident their various skills will 
be an asset to our council,” he said.
