Roger Clarke, Charlbury Town Council’s town clerk, has finally decided to put down his pen and take a well-deserved retirement. He has been in post since – yes – April 1979! 42 years of unbroken service to Charlbury. Councillors have appreciated Roger’s always sound advice and hard work for both the council and the community and we will be providing an opportunity for all of us to show our thanks and gratitude before he steps down. The council hopes to appoint Roger’s replacement in time for them to take over on 1 November.
