He said: “I never saw myself as a town councillor, but circumstances led me to it and I’m really glad.

“At this level it’s not about party politics, but what we can do for the community. The role is ideal for anyone who cares about their town, who wants to provide a voice for others, who is interested in protecting Stamford, and in taking up local issues and projects.”

Coun Ford said the council welcomes people with new ideas, and who represent the growing diversity of the town, adding: “The past year has been challenging because of the pandemic, which means we don’t currently meet in person and, as a member of the events committee, I have seen many of the things we try to organise cancelled.
