Monmouth AM Nick Ramsay was delighted to join councillors and local dignitaries for a Civic Service for Monmouthshire County Council’s new Chairman, Cllr Peter Clarke.
The service, on Sunday, was held in the beautiful setting of St Cybi Church, Llangybi, followed by a reception at the Glen-yr-Afon Hotel.
Speaking afterwards, Mr Ramsay said: “Many people will know Peter not only for his long and sterling service as councillor for Llangybi Fawr but also as mine host at the Glen-yr-Afon Hotel, which he and his wife, Jan, have run so successfully for very many years.
“I too have come to know Peter very well and am confident he will make a first class Chairman of Monmouthshire County Council. It’s his second stint as Chair, having held the office a decade ago. It was good to see previous council leaders and Chairs at the service. I look forward to working with him during his term in office and wish him and his fellow councillors every success.”
