Correction: Councillor John Corfield has asked us to point out that he is the longest serving councillor on Welshpool Town Council after we wrongly reported that the late Councillor Holloway was.

Councillor Corfield has served on the Town Council since 1987, a year before Councillor Holloway was elected. He was also Mayor of Welshpool from 1991-1993.
