Appointment of New Chairman
Bickleigh Parish Council is delighted to announce the appointment of a new Chairman; Barrie Spencer. He takes over from Carole Spencer who steps down from the role that she has held since the new Council was elected in May 2019. Barrie was first appointed as a Parish Councillor in 1996 and has previously served as Chairman between 2012 and 2014. He is also the South Hams District Councillor for Bickleigh and Cornwood Ward. Barrie was appointed by a unanimous vote at the Parish Council meeting on 27 February.
In accepting the position was keen to thank the departing Chairman – Carole Spencer, saying that she had been the glue that had held the Parish Council together since her appointment. She had presided over very difficult times for the Council following its election, dealt with the challenges that were inherited from the previous Council and set the course for us over the next few years.
