Marshland councillor’s 40 years of service

Have your say

Members of Marshland St James Parish Council recognised 40 years of hard work and dedication to the community when they made a special long-service presentation to former councillor Edward, known as Ted, Griib.

Mr Griib, who was forced to step down from his seat a couple of months ago due to health reasons, was congratulated during a parish council meeting on Monday.

Council chairman Jim Norman paid tribute to Mr Griib’s commitment and presented him with a gift of a Kindle, bought with contributions from all parish councillors.
