Former local government officer Trish Marsh has been named as the Green Party’s candidate for a Herefordshire Council by-election in Leominster.
Residents of the Leominster South Ward, which includes the villages of Ivington and Monkland, will be going to the polls on March 23 to choose a successor to the late Councillor Peter McCaull (Ind)
Trish Marsh, who is married with two children, is a Green Party councillor on Leominster Town Council and chair of the council’s Finance and General Purposes Committee.
Said Trish: “Having formerly worked for Herefordshire Council for 13 years it would be a great privilege to return and serve the people of south Leominster as their county councillor.”
Trish, an arts lover and events organiser, played a key role in saving Leominster Festival from closure in recent years. Working with local young people, she has made a short film about the impact of library cuts (which can been viewed online on YouTube).
