Holbeach Parish Council has appointed a new clerk who has wasted no time in starting work in the town.
He is Christopher Seymour, brother of South Holland District Council chairman Michael Seymour, and takes over from Teresa Daisley whose resignation was announced in January.
Mr Seymour was appointed after interviews in March conducted by a panel of three councillors.
Coun Peter Savory, parish council chairman, said: “Christopher started in his new role on Monday and he will be working full-time, Monday to Friday.
“We are very pleased to welcome him because he has experience from the business world and we wish him well in his future with us.”
