The plight of young people will be the focus of a 34-year-old mum of two, who has just been picked ahead of three other people to join Swaffham Town Council. 

Nayna Bass was co-opted onto the council by current councillors at a June 9 meeting, following the resignation of Brendan Holmes due to work pressures.

Four residents put forward their names to replace Mr Holmes, and Ms Bass was chosen to bring the council back up to its full strength of 13.
