A council is looking to fill a number of vacant seats after three members resigned at its annual town meeting.
The Watton Town Council meeting on Tuesday night saw the election of Beryl Bunning as the mayor for 2016/17, with Stan Hebborn elected as her deputy.
But the night also included resignations from former mayor Ken Birch and councillors John Rogers and Richard Crabtree – leaving the council with a total of four vacant seats.
It is currently inviting applicants for the existing vacancy, for which the application process will close on May 24.
A spokeswoman for the town council has encouraged anyone who is interested in taking a seat on the town council to get in touch.
