The Parish Clerk, Jane Gray, will bring the curtain down on 29 yearsí service to our village when she attends her final Parish Council meeting on December 2. Jane has decided to take a well-earned retirement and with husband Ian plans to spend more time with their two sons and families, which include five grandchildren. Jane was first appointed Clerk in 1986 and after nine years left the post only to return five years later. Jane has worked for nine different chairmen and women and says giving advice and helping people in the village has given her the most enjoyment. Iím sure all parishioners - those in Eynsford as well as Farningham - will want to join with us in thanking Jane for her selfless service and to wish her and the family all the very best for the future.
We are in the process of appointing a new Clerk and who we expect to be in poste before Jane leaves.
