What extraordinary and worrisome times we are all experiencing as the coronavirus impacts our daily work, our councils and our local communities.
Our roles have always been varied and challenging, this now seems to have moved to a whole new level and we brace ourselves for more to come.
As a clerk myself I know I am very grateful to our SLCC staff being there for us offering guidance, support and lobbying government for legislation changes urgently needed.
Also so grateful to fellow clerks sharing documents, ideas and dark humour. Together we are stronger, don’t struggle on your own, reach out (metaphorically) to each other for support.
I wish you good health during these difficult times and until we can meet up again.
Linda Larter MBE FSLCC, SLCC President
