Liz Auld Retires after 17 Years as Clerk to Dalston Parish Council
Thank you to everyone who contributed towards my beautiful watch and bouquet of flowers. The gift of a new watch was perfect timing as my childhood one kept stopping and some of the flowers have lasted for over a month. It was a privilege to serve the Parish as Clerk and Responsible Financial Officer for so many years and I am indebted to all those who gave their time, friendship, advice and support when I was in post. I wish Andrea well as my successor. For the retirement presentation at the Christmas Fair on 5th December 2009 I wrote the following short poem (apologies – poetry is not my forte!) and it was suggested that it be included in the Parish Papers.

Seventeen years in one post is quite a long time
Surely long enough to create a finishing rhyme
However Dalston folk have kept their Clerk busy
At times causing her to be late and in a bit of a tizzy
From High Bridge to Lingey, Cardewlees, Cumdivock and back
Via Stockdalewath, Raughton Head and Gaitsgill is quite a long track
A good timepiece in retirement is an excellent idea
To help lure the ex Clerk into action and away from the fire
Lots of friendships have been made over the years
Plenty of laughs, chat and maybe a few tears
I extend thanks and best wishes to Dalstonians one and all
May the Parish, the Council and the cockerel never fall

Best wishes for 2010 and future years - Liz Auld
