Email the Parish Clerk
Having attained a Financial Services Degree, I spent 14 years in customer services within Life Assurance and Pensions organisations, managing a variety of teams. I took a few years away from work to concentrate on being a full time mother before becoming the Proper Officer and Responsible Financial Officer to West Parley Parish Council in October 2011. The Parish Clerk role has increased over the years with additional legislation covering the sector, more responsibilities being disseminated from the principal authority, additional activities being undertaken within the village, the clubhouse reverting back to Parish Council ownership and the impending 22% population increase as a result of the large scale developments.
