A NEW town councillor has been elected following a by-election in Woodstock last night.

Louisa Maybury, of Market Street was elected with 416 votes.

Her only opponent, Christopher Harris, received 68 votes.

Mrs Maybury said: “I’m very, very touched at how many people voted for me, it’s very flattering.

“I’ve lived, had a business and raised my children in Woodstock for over 25 years, and now my girls are off at university I decided to run.”

Mrs Maybury runs a jewellery and craft shop on Oxford Street.

She added: “I’m right in the heart of the town, and people come in with their concerns and problems and I hear all sides.”

Mayor Julian Cooper said: “I’m absolutely thrilled. We have had a tradition of having retailers on the council.

“I’m sure she will a bring different perspective to our debates.”

The by-election was called after the death of former mayor Pauline Richardson last year.
