[Note: PCC, in addition to standing for Police & Crime Commissioner, is also an acronym for the Parochial Church Council in a church. For clarity, our own parishes PCC elections took place in April, and none of these candidates are eligible for election to Henfield, Shermanbury or Woodmancote’s own PCCs!]
