Four members of the Whitehill & Bordon Community Party have joined Whitehill Town Council as new councillors.

They were co-opted on to the council after four members resigned just before Christmas

Linda Delve, Yee Gan Ong, Kirsty Mitchell and Adeel Shah were invited to join the council at its January 12 meeting.

Cllr Andy Tree, leader of both the Whitehill & Bordon Community Party and the town council, said: “I am proud to have such high calibre members strengthen what is already an amazing and dedicated team.”

NHS doctor Yee Gan Ong added: “My wife and I have lived in Whitehill since 2016.

“I believe it has great potential, and I can help the town council with any health matters and issues that might arise.”

Self-employed foot health practitioner and cognitive behaviour therapist Linda Delve said: “I’m already working on various community projects with other groups and we have more in the pipeline.

“I’ve helped to organise monthly foot health sessions with Forest Community Centre.”

Kirsty Mitchell said: “My young son, dog and I have been residents of Whitehill & Bordon for the past four years.

“As a single parent, the environment has become increasingly important to me and I am keen in some way to play a part in developing that environment.

“From clean, safe and open spaces to transportation, employment, medical facilities and sustainability, I have an interest in everything, not just for myself and my family, but for everyone in the community.”

Adeel Shah added: “As a member of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, I am based mainly in Bordon but I also work throughout the UK, and the world, with the community. In Bordon I have assisted with Poppy Appeal collections and a street cleaning programme on New Year’s Day.

“I look forward to many more charitable programmes.”
