A


bbots Langley Parish Council has a new face in the hot seat now that Councillor Stephen


Giles-Medhurst‘s year as chairman has come to an end. The annual parish council meeting took place


on Monday, May 14, and Councillor Keith Williams took on the role of Chairman of the Council for the second time after previously holding the post from 2002 to 2003. Cllr Williams, who is also a Three Rivers


District Councillor, said it was an honour and a privilege to now be leading the council after spending the past year as deputy chairman to Cllr Giles-Medhurst. A new deputy chairman, Cllr Gloria Keaveny,


was also appointed at the meeting and she will assist Cllr Williams in his duties. The new chairman spoke of the work


undertaken by his predecessor and praised him for his efforts in raising more than £800 for the Peace Hospice. Cllr Williams has selected Hounds for Heroes as his chosen charity. He said: ―I would like to acknowledge the work


Stephen Giles-Medhurst has done over the past year and congratulate him.‖

Former chairman Cllr Giles-Medhurst spoke at


the meeting before stepping down from his post. He said: ―It‘s certainly been an interesting


experience. ―I have received positive coverage in My


Abbots News on the various events I have been involved with and it‘s been interesting to see the wealth of experience the council gives to local groups.‖
