Mrs Henderson was believed to be the oldest councillor in the country when she held the seat for the Conservatives at the 2019 local elections, aged 92.

It was a closely fought contest in 2019, which saw Coun Peter Hunter retain his seat for Labour, but the other two candidates were not far behind in what was a two-way contest between the parties.
