  1. I maybe the “new boy” on the Council, but I’ve had dealings with Joanna previously.

    I wish her luck in her new role and hope that we are able to find someone with the same degree of professionalism she has brought to the role of Town Clerk for many years. Apart from running the team and Town Hall she also has patience and forbearance to advise and, frankly, put up with, the team of councillors we all elect to the Council.


    • Thank you very much for your kind words Steve, I have very much enjoyed my time in Hedon, it is a lovely town presided over by extremely dedicated, hard working and passionate town council members.
