Calne News 1

CALNE Town Council has published a notice of a councillor vacancy for the Chilvester and Abberd Ward.

calne town hallThe vacancy has been caused by the resignation of Simone Partner who only took on the role earlier this year.

Simone is a social media influencer with over 90k following her 'Eltoria' Instagram page and had hoped to help the council maximise their social media resources.

However, we understand that her many work commitments - she also owns 'Darling It's Yours' on Porte Marsh Industrial Estate and co-owns Cre8ive Studios in the town centre - have meant that Simone has been unable to give the role the time necessary and consequently she has resigned.


An election to fill the vacancy will be held if ten electors from the Calne Chilvester & Abberd Ward write to the Returning Officer by 1st December asking for an election to be held. If an election is not requested by that date, the vacancy will once again be filled by co-option.
