Fakenham town clerk Christine Harrow says farewell today after more than six years in the post.

Mrs Harrow, 63, is leaving her position with the town council to pursue other interests relating to her interest in craft work and running courses in crafts.

During her time as clerk Mrs Harrow has been closely involved in the day-to-day running of the town and dealing with the administration relating to the functions carried out by the town council on behalf of local residents.

Town mayor Jayne Cubitt paid tribute to Mrs Harrow's role and said that she had carried out her duties with pleasant efficiency.

“We as a council are sorry to see her go and wish her well for the future,” said Mrs Cubitt.

“She will be hard act to follow.”

Mrs Harrow said she has mixed feelings about leaving and will miss her involvement in the town's affairs.

“I have enjoyed the job. There has always been something different happening every day and plenty of new challenges,” said Mrs Harrow.

On Saturday, Mrs Harrow will be running the latest in her day-long craft sessions at the town's Trap Lane pavilion from 10.30am until 3.30pm.

There are a limited number of places remaining for the session which focuses on craft activities including knitting, crocheting, card-making and crab-booking.

Anyone interested can contact Mrs Harrow on 01362 694009 for more details.
