I have lived in Nether Poppleton since 1991. I became the Clerk to Upper Poppleton Parish Council in 1998. I have worked with the Parish Council since that time

The Clerk provides independent, objective information and advice on policies, procedures, legal and ethical points, and works with the Chairman to ensure the Council makes lawful decisions and that meetings are effective.

The Clerk also provides administrative and management support to the council, acts as its Responsible Financial Officer, implements council decisions and is the custodian of parish records not deposited elsewhere.
