THE clerk and responsible financial officer to Rogate Parish Council (RPC), Cathryn Woolley, resigned on March 6 in order to take a job in primary school administration.
The parish council said it ‘appreciated her contribution to the running of the council since last summer, and wishes her well in her new work’.
Following an EGM, the council has already embarked on the process of recruiting a new clerk/RFO.
Having sought the advice of the Society of Local Council Clerks, advertisements have been posted throughout Rogate and Rake, as well as on Rogate Parish Council noticeboards and website www.rogateparishcouncil.gov.uk
The closing date for applications is March 28 and it is hoped the council will have a new clerk/RFO by mid-April.
