Familiar face returns to the parish council


A


bbots Langley Parish Council has welcomed the return of a familiar face after Councillor


Leon Lay, a well known local resident, was voted in as a councillor. Cllr Lay, of Marlin Square, was a parish


councillor for a number of years and held the position of Chairman of the Council twice but had to step down and leave the council last year due to health reasons. He told My Abbots News: ―I had to call it a


day but I have been having treatment for cancer at Mount Vernon Hospital and the results have been very encouraging.‖ When Cllr David White left the council a few


months ago, a spot opened up and Cllr Lay was urged to put himself forward. He explained: ―Cllr Sara Bedford asked if I


would stand again and I decided to stand by my strategy of always being positive despite the dreaded ‗C‘.


―It is sad I‘m here after the resignation of one


of our councillors, but I‘m here and I‘m looking forward to the year ahead.‖ He is delighted to be working with the other


councillors once again, including his wife Cllr Jane Lay, who remained on the council in his absence.


‘I had to call it a day but I have been having treatment for


cancer at Mount Vernon Hospital and the results have been very encouraging’


―I am pleased and delighted to be elected with


a handsome majority but was disappointed at the low turn out,‖ Cllr Lay added. ―The next year will be interesting. You never know what is going to come up.‖
