Ross-on-Wye Town Council is pleased to announce the appointment of Mrs. Carla Boyles as the next Town Clerk, succeeding Mrs. Sarah Robson, who is stepping down at the end of this year after eight years of dedicated service.

Carla brings a wealth of experience and a commitment to public service in this important role, which she has demonstrated in her role as Deputy Town Clerk to the Town Council over the last two years.

As Town Clerk, Carla will play a crucial role in ensuring the efficient functioning of local services within the town and as a key point of contact for the community and other stakeholders.

The external recruitment process was managed by Herefordshire Association of Local Councils to ensure a robust and independent procedure.

Carla states: “I am honoured to be appointed as the new Town Clerk and look forward to working with councillors, staff and the community for the benefit of Ross. I would like to thank Sarah for being a fantastic mentor to me over the past two years.”

Cllr Linden Delves, Chair of the Council’s Personnel Sub-Committee said: “I’d like to thank Sarah for her hard work over the last eight years and I’m delighted to see Carla take on the very important role of Town Clerk. I’m looking forward to working with her in her new role as we continue to deliver valuable local services.”

The Town Council wishes to express its gratitude to the outgoing Clerk, Sarah Robson and wishes her well in her future endeavors.
