AN expert on historic buildings has been co-opted on to Benson Parish Council.
Rob Workman, 34, who runs consultants Lime and Listed, was chosen ahead of the three other candidates, Steve Appleton, Nick Duncan and Fiona Lovesey.
Mr Workman, of Brook Street, Benson, said: “I can’t wait to try to help the community and do something good for the village.”
He said he wanted to put his professional skills to use as a councillor.
“There have been quite a few buildings and homes in the village that I feel should be listed that haven’t been,” he said.
