Independent, not Labour councillor

In last week’s Sandbach Chronicle a story headlined “Motion to move council meetings sparks complaint” Coun Richard Hovey was referred to as a Labour councillor. In fact he was elected to represent Ettiley Heath and Wheelock as an Independent councillor, and has never been a member of any political party. Sincere apologies to Coun Hovey, who told us: “Being Independent allows me to support or challenge any councillors’ proposals based on their specific merit to the local community.”
