East Keswick appoints a new Parish Clerk

East Keswick Parish Council has appointed a new Parish Clerk to take over from June Gallant in April. Kelly Martin of Church Drive has accepted the post and is shadowing June at Parish Clerk meetings this new year.

June is retiring after 35 years in the post. She is also Parish Clerk at Bardsey.

Andrew Batty, Chairman of East Keswick Parish Council said ‘we are delighted to have found someone of Kelly’s experience to take on this role which is our sole paid employee. June is leaving big shoes to step into as she has done such a great job for so long’.

Kelly is a qualified Chartered Accountant and has been working part time a recruitment agency and previously for Leeds Grammar School and a York charity.

June’s last official function will be the Parish Assembly in April
