Steyning councillor stands down
STEYNING parish councillor Marlene Carman has stood down after nearly 26 years in the role.
Mrs Carman, of Rosemary Avenue, Steyning, was first elected in 1987.
Chairman David Barling said: “During her time with us, Marlene has been a tower of strength and has always shown great enthusiasm and support for the parish council’s activities.
“In the early years, she was chair and vice-chair of the parish council and has served on all its main committees.
“Marlene was one of those members who always undertook some of the little jobs that never get recognised, such as gardening facilities in the town.
“She was our tree officer and countryside specialist and is also well known in the town for being chair of Steyning in Bloom, from which she has also had to withdraw.
“All of us on the parish council wish Marlene well in her retirement and she will be sadly missed by all of us.”
Anyone interested in filling the vacancy on the parish council should contact the clerk, Sue Booth, on 01903 812042.
Candidates must have resided within three miles of the parish for at least a year, and must be aged over 18. All councillors are volunteers working for the community.
