I visited the Cheshire Branch on Friday 25th January 2019 and was delighted to be met by Chris Shaw, Winner of Council of the year. He gave me a tour of their facilities and the stunning War Memorial Project recently completed. The Cheshire Branch are very enthusiast about training and they even use the profit from their annual training event towards a training bursary for one of their members. I was very impressed with the support they give their members and they made me feel very welcome.
I attended the Hertfordshire Branch on the 18th January 2019. They met at a lovely restaurant in St Albans called Lussman’s. I was made most welcome. We discussed the Certificate in Local Council Administration (CiLCA) and the one-to-one mentoring which is on offer as well as celebrating recent Branch CiLCA passes.
It was interesting to hear about the training provided by Carina Helmn, from the Hertfordshire County Association (HAPTC) and talk with Carina about the Code of Conduct. I left having had good debate and lovely food, thank you to Hertfordshire for spoiling me!
I was welcomed to the Hereford SLCC branch meeting and their Christmas dinner. I was met by a lovely group of 17 Clerks at Hereford Town Hall. It was an informative session headed by the Balfour Beatty Team. There were really good systems in place too.
Ruby, my beagle, enjoyed sightseeing around Hereford Town in the afternoon. The poppy displays were stunning...
I was thrilled today that my first branch visit was to Wiltshire on the 16th November 2018 and that I had the delightful task of presenting Jonathan Bourne with his long service award. He’s worked tirelessly for the SLCC and as a branch we are extremely proud of him
