We employ a Clerk, who is paid for eight hours a week. Our clerk is Grace Champion who lives in the village with her family. She joined us in September 2021.
The clerk provides advice and administrative support, receives official correspondence and issues correspondence on the instructions of the Council, and takes action to implement council decisions. The clerk is the “proper officer” of the council in law, and also acts as the “Responsible Financial Officer”, undertaking financial monitoring and reporting.
The Clerk also prepares agendas for meetings of the Council, gives notice of these to the Council members and the public, and records and publishes the minutes of these meetings. She is the formal point of contact with the public.
