THE winner of the Steyning Parish Council by-election yesterday has been announced.

Gill Muncey, of Perrots Lane, Steyning, was elected in the by-election, which was called by residents.

Having moved to the town in 1990 with her husband and two children, she feels she understands local concerns and issues.

“I was a local GP practice manager for over a decade but have recently retrained as a family mediator and so now have more time for community issues,” she added.

Gill is also a member of Steyning Film Society and Steyning History Society, a supporter of Steyning 10:10 campaign and has been a volunteer cleaner at St Andrews’ Church for 20 years.

She said: “I am a member of the Friends of Memorial Playing Field group but do not want to be a one-issue councillor. I am non-political.”
