Nick Caw is stepping down as Chair of the Parish Council, and from the Council itself. We would like to express our gratitude for all the work that he has put in over the past few years. He’s moving to pastures new in both career and home – the latter, all things being well, being Long Wittenham. If he has the time and inclination, LWPC could do a lot worse than to co-opt Nick at the earliest opportunity – they won’t regret it.
In the meantime, Chris Neill, the manager of Clifton Hampden Post Office and Stores, has agreed to step into Nick’s ruggedly-cobbled brogues. In saying “agreed,” it was actually more of the traditional Army “volunteer” manoeuvre (ie he had no choice in the matter). This is something Chris that will be familiar with from his service days and which he accepted with weary grace.
