A by-election is being held in Eaton Ford to replace Charles Rogers who has stood down from St Neots Town Council.

Mr Rogers, who represented the Our Community my Priority group, was elected in May last year and is understood to have resigned due to his other commitments.

The Eaton Ford ward is also served by councillors Derek Giles and Gordon Thorpe who also represent the Our Community my Priority group.

Anyone wishing to stand for election in the seat needs to apply by filling in a nomination form and this should be returned to Pathfinder House, in Huntingdon, by 4pm on Friday (February 22).

The by-election is set to take place on March 22 and polling cards have already started to arrive at homes in St Neots.
