Following the departure of Stephen Nash, who had been Town Clerk for the past three years, the Town Council advertised to fill the vacancy.

After considering the applications and interviewing selected candidates councillors decided that the post should be re-advertised in the spring.

In order to cover the vacancy until a permanent appointment is made the Council has appointed Terry Simpson, who had been the Council’s Town Clerk for eleven years prior to Stephen Nash’s appointment, as Interim Town Clerk on a part time basis.
