Samantha Heynes PSLCC, Clerk to Cuckfield Parish Council, has recently completed year 1 of Community Governance Level 4 and says, ‘I have learned so much already. Whilst CiLCA gives you a great grounding in the role of the clerk, this takes it to another level. I feel much more confident about the advice I offer councillors and how best to support them in running the council. I was hesitant about starting but have no regrets – whilst it is hard work it has been thoroughly enjoyable. Meeting fellow clerks on the same journey has been an enormous support and continues to be with the day-to-day queries that are part of our normal day in the office.’
