MRS Ros Jess has stepped down from Chedworth parish council, writes David Broad.

Mrs Jess had been a member of Chedworth Parish Council for some 20 years, initially from 1991 until 2003 and then from 2015 until the present.

She served as chairman of the council for much of that time.

Cotswold District Council have been informed and they will instigate the procedure to fill the vacancy.
