Council accepts resignation of town clerk ‘with reluctance’
Long serving town clerk will step down in October
Bideford Town Council on Monday night reluctantly accepted the resignation of town clerk George McLauchlan, who has held the post for the past 17 years.
It will come into effect at the end of October.
Mayor of Bideford Cllr Trevor Johns said the council’s reluctance had been voiced strongly, but that Mr McLauchlan’s decision was final and they had to go along with that.
No reasons have been given, although the Mayor revealed that there were some underlying issues.
