Two new councillors co-opted onto town council
Two new councillors have been co-opted onto Ongar Town Council.

Applications from retired Metropolitan Police officer David Mills and retired consultant surgeon Shukri Shami were considered and approved by councillors on Thursday.

Mr Mills, 80 - who moved to Ongar 18 months ago - told councillors he had lived a "diverse life" and added: "It's because of that I thought I may be of some assistance to the council.

"I was a police officer and military officer. I have dealt with a lot of people and feel I can deal with people to the best advantage."

Retired surgeon Mr Shami said he had recently retired from the NHS. He moved to Ongar 25 years ago when he was appointed a consultant surgeon at Oldchurch and Harold Wood hospitals (now Queen's Hospital).

He said: "I have time on my hands and don't want to sit on my hands being idle. During my career I sat on quite a number of committees and was involved in various projects with the hospital."

Council chairman councillor Kevin Piggott, announcing the approval of their applications, told both new councillors: "Welcome aboard."

* Last month Jack Bell, who runs the Cock pub in Ongar High Street, Adam Seffens and former town council chairman Derek Birch were co-opted onto the council.
