"I would like to say a huge “thank you” to Hazel Grant, who is retiring from her role as Parish Secretary at the end of this year after 9 years working for Henfield Parish Council. Hazel has seen the work of the Parish Office expand considerably over recent years and has been instrumental in keeping everything on track. She has also organised Summer Fairs, Village Evenings and the annual Remembrance events in the village. She will be sorely missed!

I would like to say a particular thank you to Hazel for all the help that she has given me in the 4 years since I started working for the Council. We all wish Hazel a long and happy retirement!!

As we say goodbye to Hazel, we welcome Claire Fullman into the role of Deputy Clerk. Claire has 6 years’ experience working at Angmering Parish Council and will bring a wealth of knowledge to the role.

We also welcome Rebecca Grantham to the part-time role of Parish Administrator and Belinda Samrah to the part-time role of Neighbourhood Plan Administrator. And finally we welcome Robin Wadey to the team of part-time Works Officers, joining Brian Stone and Dick Nye in keeping Henfield looking neat and tidy!"

And from the Hub: Our heartfelt thanks, Hazel, for all that you have done over the years to help further Henfield - a well deserved retirement. Plus welcome to Claire, Rebecca and Belinda - we look forward to working with you to publicise the Council's work - and to Robin helping to keep up Henfield's appearance.
