Vacancy for Parish Clerk / Financial Officer

The Parish Council is deeply saddened by the sudden death of their Parish Clerk, Mick Walker, on Friday 6th January 2017, after a short illness. Mick and his wife Linda moved to The Acorns, Axford Road, Ellisfield in 2016. Together they transformed the house and then on 1st June, Mick took over from Wendy Simson as Parish Clerk, applying himself enthusiastically to bring the administration into shipshape order. Mick’s funeral will be at 1:15pm on Thursday 9th February at Basingstoke Crematorium.
