A by-election will be held for the two vacant seats on Halesworth Town Council.

The election will take place on Thursday, March 1, and the council is welcoming anyone interested in representing the town to find out more about the role.

The seats have become vacant following the resignation of Andrew Payne and Tracy Gardner, who both no longer live or work in the Halesworth area.
