Congratulation to Dave Sperring (Trinity Ward) on becoming Chairman of Rayleigh Town Council for the next 12 months. Dave is a very affable chap and we are sure he will do a good job. Meanwhile Margaret Spencer (Sweyne Park Ward) steps up to being vice-chairman.
Cheryl Roe (Central Ward) steps down from being chairman. Ron Oatham made a nice non-political speech thanking her for her work during the year. We understand that Cheryl will now be organising Stephen Castle’s election campaign for the next month!
Congratulations Dave!! I will miss working with Cheryl, she has worked very hard this past year and I am sure she will continue to do so in the future.
I am sure that Cllr Sperring will do a sterling job; he seems like a very hardworking member. Interestingly, the new co-opted member for Whitehouse ward shares the same surname as an existing councillor for that ward.
