Cirencester Town Council will this week welcome Claire Bloomer who was elected as Councillor for New Mills Ward unopposed.
Claire lives in Moss Way with her husband Jethro and their children. Claire works for the Cirencester Community Development Trust and is also secretary of Cirencester Chamber of Commerce.
Cllr Bloomer said: "I just can't wait to get started. My starting point over the next few weeks is to talk to the residents who live within New Mills Ward and find out what issues and concerns they have, and how as New Councillor I can help.
"I will still be standing as secretary to the Chamber of Commerce and Cirencester Community Development Trust alongside volunteering as trade manager for the Phoenix Festival as well as other groups and charities in the town."
