A New Clerk for the Parish Council

Anita Curtis

Geddington, Newton & Little Oakley Parish Council
welcomes a new Clerk to the Council.
Anita Curtis takes up her place in the Council Chamber for the first time on Monday 8th September at 7.30pm.

Anita kindly responded to a request from Geddington.net for some personal details and gave us her reasons for taking on this very responsible job.

I have lived in Geddington with my husband Clive since 1984.  My children, Adam and Adele, attended several of the village organisations including the Playgroup, Geddington Primary School, Beavers, Cubs & Scouts and the Youth Club.  I was involved in helping with some of the village activities whilst the children were young, but unfortunately, as often seems to happen, a return to full time work then took priority and although I continued to take an interest in what was happening in the village, and supported a lot of its many activities, I was not involved in giving ‘hands on’ support to them.  Although I still work full time, I now have more time to spare and I was pleased to be given the opportunity to give something back to the village, by supporting the Parish Council. 

For the last 16 years I have worked in local government in a variety of posts.  These include within an Audit department, Customer Services, Housing, Neighbourhood Management and Children & Young People Complaints.

Hobbies and interests include reading, walking, gardening, swimming, gym and I really want to start cycling more, but just can’t fit it in!

I hope that both living in and taking a strong interest in the village, as well as working within local government for several years and having a lot of different job experiences, will help me to help the Parish Council to continue to improve how it delivers its democratic functions.”
