North Tawton councillor recognised for long service after stepping down

By Contributor in Local People

A LONG-serving member of North Tawton Town Council has stepped down and been thanked for her service to the council and the town.

Gill Hoggins recently served for a number of years as chairman of the council and, during her 30-plus years as a councillor, has been the council chairman for more than 20 years.

The council’s recently-appointed chairman, Steve Whiteley, extended the council’s thanks to Gill before the July meeting of the council.

He said she was responsible for many things which have been a great benefit to the town and particularly for the establishment of the council offices and the free car park.

Gill wished her former colleagues and the newly-elected councillors well.

She added: ‘Without the support of my late husband Peter and my children Jamie and Louise I could not have put so much time to North Tawton and North Tawton Town Council.’

An engraved vase, flowers and a card were among the items presented to Mrs Hoggins as a ‘thank you’.

Gill is pictured being presented with her gifts by members of the town council.
