Changes on the Parish Council

New councillor and clerk introduced at the Annual Parish Meeting on 12 May.

The Annual Parish Meeting was attended by seven councillors and seven members of the public, which included the outgoing Parish Council chairman. Wine and nibbles were served, and after an interval of social chat, Mark Roche made a short speech. He thanked the former Parish Clerk, Elizabeth Thuburn, for her dedication, knowledge, and excellent administration before presenting her with a bouquet; he then thanked the past chairman, Terry Austin, for his contribution to the cause, his tact and diplomacy, and presented a bottle of whisky.

Terry Austin then welcomed David Vincent as Stanhoe’s newest Parish Councillor. He gave a short report on the activities and achievements of the Parish Council over the past year, and an update on continuing efforts with Community Speed Watch, the perceived need for a footpath in Bircham Road and the reasons for it still being low on Highways’ priority list, and the wished-for reduction in the 40 mph speed limit in Stanhoe to 30 mph, which occupies the same position in Highways’ list. Terry ended by offering his personal thanks to Elizabeth Thuburn, and presented her with a floral display.

Incoming chairman David Lord then introduced himself and his wife Jenny, also a councillor. David said how much he wished to make the Parish Council even more “available” to village residents in the hope of more and better interaction between the PC and the public. Wayne Leighton has now taken Elizabeth’s place as Parish Clerk.
