Following the sad loss of Cllr Jack Williams, who represented Churchdown between 2016 and 2019, there will be a by-election on 2 May - the same day as borough council elections.

After a brief selection process, Ben Evans was chosen to run for the Liberal Democrats.  

On the selection, Cllr Paul Hodgkinson, group leader for Gloucestershire Liberal Democrats, said:

"We are absolutely delighted to have Ben running to represent Churchdown.  Ben is passionate about helping young people reach their full potential, as a youth worker and managing director of Gloucestershire Mentoring and Support. 

"I cannot think of a better candidate to continue Jack's legacy and am looking forward to working with Ben on improving Gloucestershire's youth service provision."

Speaking after his nomination was confirmed, Ben said:

"Working with young people I am passionate about helping them to achieve their goals, and critical to this is improving the facilities available to them. I cannot wait to get my teeth stuck into holding this administration to account on the issues I see day in day out.  

"Living in Churchdown, I believe that local people need to represent themselves and those around them; as such would be honoured to represent this fantastic village.  If you don't know who to support in May, please consider giving me your support!"
