Friends and colleagues from across North Herts gathered in Royston on Thursday to say farewell to the town clerk on her retirement after 10 years.
Susan Thornton-Bjork has served Royston Town Council for 18 years – first as deputy town clerk from 1999, then as town clerk from 2007.
Gifts, flowers and a photo memory book commemorating her time with the town council were presented to Mrs Thornton-Bjork.
Royston mayor Councillor Vera Swallow and council leader Councillor F John Smith paid tribute to her long and committed service as town clerk, and said she would be much-missed by the town and councillors.
Mrs Thornton-Bjork’s deputy Caroline Mills was welcomed as new town clerk.
