Of course as we have been posting up the results of the general election I appreciate that a sizeable number of our readers have actually been waiting for something much more important.

So now here is the final tally for the Huish Episcopi Parish Council by-election.

Remember that as a result of two resignations, this election was to choose two new councillors. Long serving councillor John Stranger who had been stood down on a technicality (he had missed meetings for a six month period – albeit as a result of illness) stood again in this election.
