Jan Thompson co-opted as new Parish Councillor

Jan Thompson has been co-opted as the new Parish Councillor at the most recent Full Council meeting in July.

Jan's late husband, Colin Thompson, was the previous Council Chairman.

Jan has lived in Duffield for 30 years and worked in several primary schools in Derby and Derbyshire as a teacher. Her sons attended Duffield Meadows and Ecclesbourne schools and both Jan and Colin were previously Parish Councillors between 1994-98.

Jan's interests include a lifelong love of travel, enjoying wildlife and reading and discussing novels at book groups. Jan is an active member of the U3A in Belper.

As the Council is at recess in August, Jan's first Full Council meeting will be in September, Jan will join the Strategic Development Committee and be part of the Village Action Plan Working Groups: Supporting Vulnerable Residents and Community & Culture.

Jan said "I am very pleased to have been co-opted as a Parish Councillor and I am looking forward to getting started in September."
