AN elec­tion has been called for a spot on Poyn­ton Town Coun­cil fol­low­ing the death of coun­cil­lors Is­abel Thorn­ton-Mad­docks.

The 34-year-old Con­ser­va­tive politi­cian died on July 17 af­ter a brave bat­tle with can­cer.

It means there is a va­cancy avail­able on Poyn­ton Town Coun­cil rep­re­sent­ing west ward.

No­tices of elec­tion have now been pub­lished.

Nom­i­na­tion pa­pers may be ob­tained from the Re­turn­ing Of­fi­cer, Elec­tions Of­fice, Mac­cles­field Town Hall, Mar­ket Place, Mac­cles­field, Cheshire, SK10 1EA.

If the elec­tion is con­tested, the poll will take place on Thurs­day, Oc­to­ber 8 from 7am to 10pm.

Mrs Thorn­tonMad­docks, of Park Lane, Poyn­ton, had over­come can­cer last year but be­came ill again shortly af­ter her re-elec­tion to the town coun­cil in May.

She was a trained so­lic­i­tor but had given up le­gal prac­tice to be­come her hus­band Carl’s of­fice man­ager. Her pas­sion was breed­ing and show­ing cocker spaniels.

She was first elected to the town coun­cil from 2012.
