Clerk’s Comments for August 2017
The parish council elections were uncontested, which means the seven nominated councillors were duly elected. They are all current councillors, and are Cllrs Parsons, Rogers, Powlesland, Fox, Finnimore, Screech & Kneebone.
Cllr Parsons was elected Chair, with Cllr Fox elected as Vice Chair, and (in the absence of a Clerk) acting Clerk.
This leaves three positions that will need to be co-opted.
If you are interested, look out for notices on the boards and website for further information. It is not a great commitment of your time, but does provide the Parish with a valuable resource. If you are interested in applying to be co-opted as a councillor, contact either Cllr Parsons on 01566 777179, or Cllr Fox on 01566 773125.
The position of Clerk will be advertised soon. Full details on the role, a Job Description, Person Specification, how to apply, and deadlines for applying, will be posted here shortly.
Having temporarily taken over from Alison Barham I have to say I am indebted to her work in making the task of standing in as the Clerk easier than it could have been. That said, I am more than keen for a permanent Clerk to be appointed.
As I am only acting Clerk there has been a lot to pick up, and that is why there has been a delay in posting up to date Parish Council details on the web site, but I have now managed to post the minutes for June and July.
