At an assembly on Tuesday 20th September Cllr Elliott, Chairman of Maldon District Council, met the successful candidates from this year's school council elections at Maldon Primary School. The school elections took place last week, with every pupil voting for a girl and boy candidate to represent their class in the council.
Lea Tyler, Deputy Headteacher, Maldon Primary School, said "Pupils who wished to put themselves forward had to give a small presentation on why they would be a good choice for the role and a secret ballot was held. We have looked at how a democracy works at an age related level, so the children know that our council very much mirrors what happens in the world around them."
The introduction of a new 24/7 phone line will make it easier for residents to make a range of payments, says Maldon Council.
The new service is quicker and easier for residents and businesses to pay council tax, business rates and garden waste using their credit or debit card* and reference number.
Councillor David Sismey, Chairman of the Council's Community Services Committee, said; "We are pleased to be able to offer this new service which will enable customers to be able to pay their accounts quickly and conveniently."
Residents can access the service by dialling 01621 212410 and payments can also be made online at www.maldon.gov.uk/payments

The aircraft included the BE2, which had just returned safely from France after taking part in the commemorations over the Somme and for ANZAC day.
Ian Flint, Stow Maries Great War Aerodrome CEO, said: "It was great to see so many new faces here, alongside our long term supporters.
