Jenni is the clerk to the parish council. She lives on the main road in Ogbourne St Andrew, near to The Silks on The Downs. She is the new kid on the block, having only recently taken over from Allison Grainger as our clerk. We are very lucky to have been able to persuade her to take on the role.
We have all been impressed by how quickly she has got to grips with what is actually quite a complex job. As clerk, she is responsible for the finances of the parish council, for organising council meetings and minuting the proceedings, being the council’s link to Wiltshire and advising council on procedure and best practice.
Sometimes, managing the parish council is a bit like trying to herd cats, but through her calm personality, she does an excellent job. Jenni is a very active member of the community and is also a member of the Parochial Church Council. Formerly a teacher of mathematics and still a keen singer and a formidable tennis player, Jenni is well placed to keep us on our toes. Thanks Jenni!
