NOMINATIONS close today at 4pm to fill the vacancies on Malvern Town Council created by the resignation of two members.

New members are sought for the Chase and Link wards, following the resignations of Simon Nichols and Clive Smith.

Nomination papers can be obtained from Malvern Town Council or Malvern Hills District Council, and must be hand-delivered by 4pm today (Friday) to the Council House, Avenue Road.

If multiple candidates stand in either ward, a poll will take place on Thursday, February 8.

Another vacancy has more recently been created in the Chase ward by the resignation of Roger Yates, and that will be dealt with at a later date.
