Haslingfield Parish Clerks

We are sorry to announce that Vicky Crowden has tendered her resignation and will be leaving us at the end of September. We have enjoyed enormously working with Vicky, but her need to spend more time with family has, and rightly so, taken precedence.
We have been very fortunate to recruit Jacqui Cressey who was one of the applicants for the post of Assistant to the Parish Clerk. Jacqui lives in the village and has done so for the last twelve years.
Our best wishes go to both Vicky and Jacqui.
