FIVE candidates have been confirmed to contest the Wells ward by-election of Malvern Hills District Council which became vacant following the death of Chris Cheeseman.

The candidates for the poll vote include Christopher Roland Burrows (Labour Party), Louise Gibson (Independent), Simon Winfield Gill (Liberal Democrat), Chris O’Donnell (Conservative Party) and Richard Spencer (UK Independence Party – UKIP).

The by election will be contested on Thursday, August 7.

The Observer reported last month how Coun Cheeseman died after collapsing during a specially arranged district council Planning Committee meeting.

Poll cards will be sent to all registered electors in the ward. Anyone who does not receive a poll card needs to contact the Electoral Registration Office at the Council by Tuesday, July 22.
