Kings Langley Parish Council has welcomed a new clerk to the role following Paul Dunham’s retirement after more than 17 years.
Caroline Owen has taken on the role after Paul bid farewell to the village at the end of last year.
The council has praised Caroline for how well she has settled in so far, with Paul remaining on hand to offer helpful tips and advice.
Speaking to KingsNews, Caroline, who has lived in the village for 15 years, said she took on the role to give something back to the community.
She said: “I have always enjoyed doing things within the community. I have been a parish clerk previously but I have two young children, so having something closer to home suited me.
“Being able to give something back to the area feels great. I love Kings Langley and the surrounding area.”
Caroline explained that she is enjoying the role as it changes from day to day.
She said: “It’s such a broad role; it can be anything from measuring a gate size, to looking at locations for bird boxes, to looking at the council budget.
“It’s very broad and it keeps each day interesting.”
Caroline added that she is looking forward to getting to know more local residents and business owners through the role.
