The Town Council RFO has gone!

Less than 2 years in and the Responsible Finance Officer, Beverley Porter, is off to pastures new. Beverley did a marvellous job of getting together the 2007/08 annual accounts together. Then almost immediately she got on with the 2008/09 accounts. From my point of view, Beverley did a very good job of getting the Town Council out of the deep mess they were in.

It is a pity the Town Council couldn't keep her. I've only been to a couple of Town Council meetings and I felt  that some Councillor ignored Beverley's advice. This is why Councils have Officers who are there to advise the Council. Beverley will be a hard act to follow.

From the Town Council website - Yes they can change it when the Town Council wants too!
