A NEW chairman has been elected by Frinton Residents Association.

Former chairman Patricia Marino stood down from the role after six years in the hot seat at an association committee meeting last week.

Neil Churcher was elected as new chairman and Catriona Miller took the role of vice chairman.

Mr Churcher said: “It is great to be chosen to take on the position.

“I’ve got some large shoes to fill because Patricia has done an excellent job in her time as chairman.

“It will be an honour to be able to help maintain and improve Frinton for residents and visitors.”
