A Potters Bar councillor has retired after nine years with the Hertsmere authority.

Oakmere representative Penny Swallow, Conservative, submitted her resignation yesterday, and Hertsmere chief executive Donald Graham thanked her for her service.

Leader of the council and the Conservatives, Morris Bright, said: “Penny is a long-serving member who has done a great deal during her time as a Hertsmere councillor.

“She will be greatly missed, but we all wish her a happy retirement in Norfolk.

“I have passed on much thanks to her for nine years’ service.”

Constituents in Potters Bar Oakmere who wish to contact a local councillor can instead contact Cllr Jean Heywood or Cllr Ruth Lyon.
