Cllr Margaret Blogg has retired from West Buckland Parish Council after 21 years in the chair. Her final duty was to take the chair at the start of the Annual Parish Council meeting on the 25th May to call for nominations for her successor.
Margaret had planned to stand down in May 2020 but stayed to chair the Council through an unprecedented period when meetings were held virtually as a result of Covid regulations. This was the first time councillors had met in person since February 2020 and Cllr David Lacey, Vice-chair, was able to take the opportunity to present her with a farewell gift from her fellow councillors and the clerk.
Councillors elected Charles Silverlight as their new chairman.
