Stradbroke Parish Council are pleased to announce the appointment of Odile Wladon (pronounced Vladon) to be our clerk starting 1st September 2015.

Odile lives in Wickham Skeith working with her husband. They have 4 children. Although this is Odile's first position as a clerk of a parish council, she has a lot of relevant experience which includes carrying out necessary administration for a business, book keeping, PA to a Main Board Director at Laura Ashley, including minuting Board meetings, a school governor for 15 years (8 as Chair), and much more. Odile has shown to be very proactive and organised in many areas and has the full confidence from all councillors who have met her.

Odile is already booked on a training course and will get up to speed very quickly. Although Carol Smy has now left the council, Carol has kindly offered to provide some guidance and handover to Odile in the coming weeks, for which we are very grateful and would like to thank Carol for her ongoing support.

We do not have a PC meeting in August, but we will next convene at 7.30pm on Monday 14th September in the Community Centre.

On Behalf of Stradbroke Parish Council
Oliver Last
Vice Chairman
