‘Having received the latest Daily Digest from the e-Forum, I just wanted to say how useful it is! I always read through and find something of interest. It’s very helpful to know how other clerks are dealing with the various queries that are raised.’
Teresa Irving, Clerk to Downswood Parish Council

‘I just wanted to say how great the September edition of The Clerk magazine is – I have read it online. There are so many interesting articles in it that I am sure many clerks will find it very useful and informative.’
Anne Wilson FSLCC, Clerk to Welshpool Town Council

‘I’ve just read through the latest edition of The Clerk and wanted to let you know that you’ve reached a new high. Virtually, every page was useful to me and my staff. And I’ve booked on the webinar elections training already.’
Paul Wynne PSLCC, Town Clerk, Frome Town Council

‘Having spent the morning as a new clerk browsing the website, I just wanted to tell you want an excellent resource this is. Thank you!’ Judith Longman, Brill Parish Council

I would just like to place on record my appreciation of the support and help I have received over the years from SLCC; the role of clerk can be very solitary as we face varied challenges and I would have found it incredibly difficult without the advice and assistance that I have been given from SLCC, so many thanks to you all, it has been much appreciated. I am very appreciative of all SLCC’s help and support.  The Staffordshire branch of SLCC has been a source of friendship and useful knowledge and this has been invaluable, given how isolated the role of Clerk can be at times.’
Liz Harrington-Jones, Former Clerk to Chebsey Parish Council

‘I have worked for the Parish Council for a number of years and finally I have taken the plunge to retire! SLCC has been an excellent organisation which has offered support to me over many years of service, providing advice and motivation towards carrying out the important roles of clerk and RFO.  SLCC will no doubt continue to provide good support, training and assistance especially to new entrants! All good wishes to the society and its members for the future.’
Jan Capon, Former RFO to Loose Parish Council

‘I have found my membership of SLCC invaluable since 2004 and have thoroughly enjoyed the regional seminars I have attended.’
Anita Sach, Former Clerk to Alkington Parish Council

‘I would like to take this opportunity to wish you and the full SLCC team all the very best for the future both professionally and personally. It’s my view from my many years of membership that you all do an outstanding and invaluable job in the services that you undertake and offer to all local council’s.
I had the privilege to be active with SLCC locally, regionally and also nationally as a former NEC member – I even attended an IIMC event in Nashville in 2011 with the UK SLCC delegation!!
Many rewarding memories over the years and much to be appreciative for to SLCC – please continue the fine work, needed more than ever at this challenging time for all involved in delivering public services at a very local level.’
Mike Slaughter, Former Clerk to Ashington Town Council

‘SLCC have been a great source of practical help and advice to me over the past 18 years. As the role of clerks is evolving so fast nowadays, I’m sure you’ll be needed more than ever – keep up the good work!’
Jane Colman, Former Clerk to Maldon Town Council

‘I very much enjoyed my role as Town Clerk 2008-2017, and from then to date as a past service member.   I am grateful to the Society for making available its many membership services during these periods.   It has also been interesting to see the positive developments that have and continue to take place as the Society moves forward in its professional environment to meet future challenges.’
Colin Pierce, Former Clerk to Holywell TC
