Vacancy for the Aust Parish Clerk post 

Littleton Fishing Engine Photographer Peter Haworth

Tim Pyper, the current Parish Clerk for Aust, is retiring from this part-time role and so a vacancy is now being advertised for the Parish Clerk/Responsible Financial Officer role.  You can find all the details of the role here, together with contact details if you would like to discuss what is involved, with someone who is currently doing the job.  

This is a great opportunity to find out more about your local parish and to contribute to its smooth running.

Good news!  Last January, there was a plea in Meeting Point for someone to revive the Olveston Playgroup for babies and toddlers - and now some local mums have done just that.  So, if you have young children or grandchildren, you can go along and have a drink and a chat and meet others with small children...   Click the picture for more details:
