MEET Thaxted Parish Council's newest recruit.
Sue Stockle was appointed as a councillor at a full council meeting last month, filling the gap left by Richard Hingston, who resigned in November.
Cllr Stockle previously stood for election in July. After missing out on a handful of votes then, the mum of two - who has lived in the village for 17 years - is delighted to be on board.
She said: "I fell in love with Thaxted the moment I moved here - I love the community feeling here.

"I missed out then but I'm here now. In the last nine months the council has really moved forward and is better engaging with residents."
