A district councillor for Aylsham has stepped down from his role after more than 10 years representing the ward.

Ian Graham, who was a member of Broadland District Council, has decided to dedicate more time to charity following the loss of his wife last summer.

He said in a resignation letter that he enjoyed representing Aylsham but felt he could not continue to support constituents alongside his charity work.

Andrew Proctor, leader of Broadland District Council said: “Ian was a dedicated member of the council with a great commitment to Aylsham and its residents.”

Mr Graham will continue to work supporting children with special needs through Mnarani Aid in Kenya and through Rotary International.

An election for a replacement will be held on May 24, with nomination papers due at Broadland District Council between April 19 and 26, by 4pm.
