Deputy Town Clerk
Annette KirkTel: 07496 528389
Annette moved to the Blackdown Hills in November 2019 from Worcestershire. Working 30 hours a week.
‘’My position as Deputy Clerk is to support the Town Clerk and Councillors. To assist in the day-to-day management of council-run services and activities. Offering administration support to both the Allotment Committee and Town Centre Working Group. One of the most successful projects being the Pop-Up Shop, which has proven valuable for people, who want to experience running a town centre business.
Living in the Blackdown Hills and driving a short drive to work in Wellington gives me the opportunity to enjoy my interests of walking, golf and attending the gym.
I have found the people of Wellington to be very warm and friendly. I am sure visitors to the town will feel the same”

``I applied for the role in early 2020 to facilitate re-location from the North Devon coast the Tiverton area. I am really looking forward to getting to know the Wellington Town Council team and Councillors as well as getting to know a new area. It will be great to apply my knowledge of Local Government to my new role and experience different ways of working. I have very much grown to enjoy the varied and satisfying work a Local Government position provides. In my spare time you can usually find me at my sewing machine, sewing up a new dress or top for myself or gift items for friends and family. I also have a keen interest in travel and love to take trips whenever possible.``
