Our village had its annual governance elections at the Parish Meeting held in April. John Herbert was re-elected Chair, for which his wishes to thank everyone. John works tirelessly to represent the views of all of the residents of Sheldon, and his unanimous re-election is a very public display of the confidence that we all have in his abilities, both as Chairman and Parish Member at the Peak District National Park Authority.
For the first time the village has a female vice-chairwoman; Georgina Tanner was unanimously elected into the role, which John Herbert says “…was an excellent decision by the Parish Meeting”. Georgina has lots of ideas, and John goes on to say that “She will be an enormous help, not only to me but to the whole village”. Georgina has vast experience of the governance of the National Park, having worked for the Authority as an Officer for a number of years.
Congratulations are also due to all of those elected to the various committees. Sheldon is like an original Swiss Canton, everyone is elected, and it shows in the tremendous community spirit amongst all of the residents.
