New Parish Clerk for St Erth

March 09th 2020

Fiona Drew

Parish Clerk, Pete Rylett, is retiring at the end of March and will be succeeded by Mrs. Fiona (Fi) Drew, who is currently Clerk for both Towednack and Zennor Parish Councils.
Pete said “the Council can be proud of all it has achieved over the past nine years while I’ve been its Clerk and I’m so pleased I’ve been able to contribute to those successes.”
Pete added that “Since 2011, the Parish Council has: developed a great website; completed a Neighbourhood Plan with fantastic public support; modernised, and made fully accessible, the public toilets; created a new riverside park with a youth shelter; secured Cornwall Council’s commitment to provide major highway safety improvements; negotiated with Cornwall Council an annual income from the car parks at the Hub; developed much stronger working relationships with others who can affect the daily lives of residents; and secured a strong financial position through year-on-year prudent financial management.”
In conclusion, Pete said “Whilst I’ll be leaving St Erth with fond memories of the Council, the place, and the community, I’m also really looking forward to starting my new life. Fi’s appointment ensures that St Erth will remain in good hands and I have absolutely no doubt that more improvements are to come.”
Fi commented that “I am very excited to be joining St Erth Parish Council as its new Clerk. I have very big shoes to fill following Pete’s retirement as he has such a wealth of knowledge and experience in local government. I am sure that my three years clerking at both Towednack and Zennor have equipped me for the challenges ahead working for a larger parish.”
“I am looking forward to getting to know the people of St Erth and playing a key role in ensuring that the work Pete has been part of continues to flourish and grow. All the Councillors are very proactive and it is evident that they care passionately about their parish and I look forward to working with them all. I would like to wish Pete all the best for his retirement.”
