AFTER 38 years as a member of Ashwell Parish Council Dr Fergus Moynihan has decided to step down.

He left the parish council shortly before Thursday's elections.

He was given a presentation for all his years' service by parish council chairman Mark White.

Dr Moynihan was one of six parish councillors who did not stand for re-election.

The turnout for Thursday's election was 57 per cent: one of the highest across North Herts.

Parish clerk Jane Porter said: "We also had 16 candidates for 12 seats which is a high level of interest and activity."

District councillor Andrew Young said the high turnout showed that Ashwell produced an "intelligent electorate.
