Holbeach county councillor Nick Worth is the only South Holland member in the new executive named on Friday.

Coun Worth continues in running culture, heritage and libraries, with responsibility for steering through controversial reforms to library services in Lincolnshire.

Three executive members are from the Bourne and Deepings areas, including council leader Martin Hill of Folkingham Rural.

Coun Hill said: “The next few years will be some of the most challenging the council has faced, so it’s important we have the right team in place to lead us forward.

“All the members of the new executive are experienced councillors who have, time and again, proved their ability to take the tough decisions and do the right thing for residents.

“I’m confident that, together, we can continue the good work that has taken place over the last few years, protecting the services local people value the most.”
