My name is Sylvia Gibson. I am your new Clerk. I was born and bred in the countryside and I live in a village which is close to Hill Ridware. So I know what rural life is like – and I love it! I spent thirty-three years as a language teacher in secondary schools all over the Midlands before taking early retirement. I have spent the last five years working as a parish clerk in another Staffordshire village. I am looking forward to working at Mavesyn Ridware Parish Council and to meeting all of you!
