Camborne Town Clerk Bids Farewell

Park Gerry Amanda

Camborne Town Council would like to announce that Ms Amanda Mugford, Camborne Town Council’s Town Clerk has retired due to poor health.

‘I will always remember how moved I felt when marching in my first Remembrance Day parade; I  felt the presence of my forebearers and vowed to myself to do my best to serve everyone in the Camborne Parish. I feel similarly emotional writing this letter as I am very sad to not be able to continue as your Clerk due to poor health. This was always more than a job for me.’

Mayor of Camborne, Cllr David Wilkins has taken the opportunity to thank Amanda for her service to the Town Council:

‘It is time for us to bid farewell to Amanda, a brilliant and dedicated Clerk for Camborne Town Council. Amanda committed over ten years to this organisation and supported it through many transitions, changes, and successes. Amanda leaves a legacy and has played an integral role in the forward vision for our community. We thank her for the passion and dedication, always going above and beyond for Camborne.

In a letter addressed to the Mayor, Ms Mugford thanked those she had worked with over the years:

‘I have met and worked with so many lovely people from all walks of life during my time as Clerk, there are far too many to mention but I will always feel fortunate for having had the opportunity. I would like to thank all Councillors for their hard work and dedication over the last ten years which presented challenges not previously experienced at our tier of local government. Most of all I would like to thank every member of my team, an outstanding group of committed, talented and caring people. I have valued your support more than words can say.’

Cllr Mrs Val Dalley, Deputy Mayor, bid a fond farewell from Camborne Town Council:

‘Though we are very sad to say goodbye, we are happy Amanda will have time to focus on her health, her family and friends. We wish Amanda the absolute best in this next phase of her life.’

Ms Mugford closed her heartfelt letter:

‘I feel proud and privileged to have serve the people of Camborne as Town Clerk and wish you all good health and every success in the future.’ 

In the interim Mrs Samantha Hughes, Deputy Town Clerk and Finance Officer, has been temporarily promoted to Acting Town Clerk. It is anticipated recruitment for the permanent position of Town Clerk will take place in Spring 2021.
