MESSAGE FROM THE MAYOR (FIRST IN A SERIES)

Tuesday, 10 August 2021

During the past few weeks there has been much misinformation spread around deliberately to undermine the work of Downham Market Town Council. There will now be a series of emails which will both set the record straight and be posted on the Town Council website.


Number One

Our Town Clerk was short listed and interviewed for the job of Town Clerk by a properly constituted interview panel which included an independent adviser from NPTS.

All proper procedures were followed,  references taken up and she was very clearly the best qualified of all those interviewed.

The Clerk is our Legal Officer and RFO, (Responsible Financial Officer). Both positions of great responsibility.

We, as a Council are extremely fortunate in having such a highly qualified and diligent Clerk.

We all have a duty of care to ensure that Elaine is protected from bullying and harassment and allowed to do the job that she is so very well qualified to do.


Cllr Jenny Groom

Mayor
