Home » Latest News » Council Appoints a New Clerk

The Parish Council have appointed a new permanent Parish Clerk and Responsible Financial Officer, Lydia Mason (nee Beaney), with effect from 16 November 2020. Lydia will work with the Locum Clerk, Lisa Newby, for the next few weeks to facilitate a smooth handover. Lydia will take over fully after the next Parish Council meeting on 3 December 2020.

Lydia moved to Curry Rivel in 2013. A qualified chartered accountant, she has recently started working for herself and now, with a more flexible working lifestyle, feels the time is right to commit more time to the village and its residents. She has many hobbies which include baking, gardening, growing your own and sewing,

Councillors are delighted to welcome Lydia as the new Clerk and Responsible Financial Officer and look forward to working with her. The Parish Council wish to recognise and thank Lisa Newby for the very valuable support she has provided to the Council during this very difficult period and for the training and ongoing support provided to Lydia in her new role.
