All change for the Council’s members and clerk

Last night (Wednesday 12 May) at our Annual Parish Council Meeting, we said goodbye to two mainstays of the council.

After over thirty years as a councillor, and Chairman for the last ten, John Carter has decided to leave the council.

Judith Critchlow, last year’s Vice Chairman, was elected as Chairman for this year, with Nick Plant elected to succeed Judith as Vice Chairman.

It was also the last PC meeting for Julie Mason, our Parish Clerk for the last two and a half years with us.  She has resigned from her part-time roles with our and three other parish councils after being appointed full-time Town Clerk at Bollington Town Council. In her comparatively short time with us, she has made a a major contribution to bringing us into the twenty first century!

To fill her shoes, the council formally appointed Carlton Evans as our new clerk following interviews with several candidates.

The council members showed its appreciation of the hard work of John and Julie with presentations, and welcomed Judith, Nick and Carlton to their new posts.
