THREE candidates will be vying for a vacant seat on Bewdley Town Council next month.

The by-election is being held in the Bewdley East Ward on Thursday, August 2, following the death of Mary Fishwick at the start of last month.

Those nominated for the seat are Laurence Kearns for the Conservatives, Labour’s Rod Stanczyszyn and David Field for UKIP.

The polling station will be St George’s Hall in Load Street and voting will be open from 7am until 10pm.

And the count will be held in the council chamber at Wyre Forest House in Kidderminster from 10pm on that night.

More information about the candidates and the election can be found in the Upcoming Elections section of the council’s website
