New Parish Clerk, Mr David Jellings

DavidJ_aOn behalf of Charfield Parish Council I would like to introduce David Jellings, who last night was formally approved as the new Clerk and Responsible Financial Officer to the Council, subject to the normal processes.

David comes to us with considerable experience of working within local government, and the Council is looking forward to working with him.

There is an inevitable transition as we say farewell to Hannah and welcome to David. For the most part though you ought not to notice any breaks in service.

The email and postal address will remain the same, but the telephone number is likely to change. For now, you can leave messages on the existing number, and Hannah has kindly agreed to pass these across to David.

David can be contacted on the new number of 01454-880130.
