Parish clerk retiring after long service
11:59am Wednesday 4th September 2013 in News
A LONG-SERVING parish clerk is retiring from her post after 23 years serving her village parish council.
Carol Hammond has been clerk to Aislaby, Middleton and Wrelton Parish Council since 1990, but has decided to retire in December to have more time with her family.
Carol ook her first job in local government – a part-time job at Pickering Town Council – because it fit round school hours while her children were young, but soon found she was enjoying the work.
She enjoyed the work so much that when a vacancy came up at Aislaby, Middleton and Wrelton she applied straight away, got the job and began work in July 1990 and has continued ever since, despite other work commitments.
“I have met some lovely people during my 23 years as the clerk and have helped in various projects including the renovation of Town End Pond, Middleton – twice.
The clerk currently works f”rom home, on a part-time basis, and attends a meeting in the village hall once a month. The parish council hope to find a new clerk to start before Carol retires.
Anyone interested in the position should send a CV to Coun Clifford Goodwill, Aislaby Middleton and Wrelton Parish Council, Barnston, Back Lane South, Middleton.
