New face on town council
12:00am Tuesday 18th September 2012 in Andover
STEVEN Hardstaff has been co-opted on to Andover Town Council following the resignation of its founding chairman Tony Raper.
At the full council meeting in the Guildhall on Thursday, Mr Hardstaff was one of five people who had come forward to fill the vacant position, but after hearing from four of the five the sitting councillors made their choice.
Mr Hardstaff signed the declaration of acceptance and took his place at the table at the recent council meeting.
He has lived in Andover for 30 years and currently acts as a school governor as well as a treasurer for Upper Clatford Football Club.
He highlighted a desire for honesty and transparency and added: “I want to see the High Street return to be bright and vibrant as it used to be.”
