Elfrede was elected three years ago as the county councillor to represent Beccles and is the second Green councillor to lead the group. Recently mayor of the town, she has made many friends in pioneering new initiatives in the area, aided by councillors Graham Elliott and Caroline Topping.

Group member and leader in 2018/19 Councillor Andrew Stringer welcomed Elfrede:

“We are utterly thrilled that Elfrede is leading the second largest group on the County Council.  This shows the huge amount of respect Elfrede has earned from all those that work with her, and we look forward to carrying on delivering positive outcomes for our residents, while building the society we wish to see and deserve.”
