Appointment of a new Parish Clerk

Published: 20 December 2018

Ian Orton, our existing clerk and Responsible Financial Officer, has been in post since March 2013, and has decided that now is the time to consider retirement. Following the recent selection process Clare Smith, the current Clerk at Ilkley Town Council, has accepted the position, and will join us from 4th March 2019.

Clare has been Clerk at Ilkley since 2014, and before that was an Assistant Clerk Knaresborough Town Council.  Clearly her experience at Ilkley helps enormously with local knowledge and contacts at Bradford. Moreover as the Responsible Financial Officer at Ilkley, Clare has the experience in financial control that we are looking for with a budget of our size.

The Parish Council looks forward to welcoming Clare to the team and wishes Ian well for the future
