The votes are in and Letchworth Garden City Heritage Foundation has a fresh batch of governors today following an election.

Anthony Burrows, John Hillson, John Barry and Alison Basford have been elected out of the 25 people nominated for Foundation roles, while William Armitage and Celia Saunders have been re-elected.

The elected governors will help the charitable organisation steward the garden city estate, and will represent the views of the town.

Of the 30 Foundation governors, six are elected, 14 are appointed by the board of trustees, eight are appointed by clubs and societies in the town and a further two are selected by North Herts District Council and Herts County Council.

Colin Chatfield, who is a chairman of the Foundation, said: “We warmly welcome our six new elected governors and look forward to their contribution in shaping the Foundation’s work on behalf of the communities across Letchworth.”
