Two councillors have told the Advertiser that they will quit at the full meeting of Kimberley Town Council tonight (Thursday July 31).

Disgruntled Green Party representatives Katharina Boettge and David Kirwan say they will hand in their resignation amid complaints about the way money is being spent by the council.

They have also raised concerns about the authority’s relationship with the local community.

Cllr Kirwan has been a member of the town council since 2011 after he was elected in the local elections.

Cllr Boettge has been working as the council’s press officer and as a member of its amenities and estates committee since last year.

The meeting will take place tonight at 7.30pm at the Parish Hall on Newdigate Street and is open to the public.
