Welcome to our New Town Clerk and Responsible Financial Officer

Residents of Newbiggin by the Sea, I would like to introduce our new Town Clerk and Responsible Financial Officer, Leanne Lawson. Leanne has been an integral part of our community since she joined us in December 2021 as the Assistant Clerk and Projects Co-ordinator. Her diverse experience in the NHS, retail, and hospitality sectors has equipped her with a unique skill set and a profound commitment to serving our town. A wealth of experience and a passion that aligns perfectly with our town’s spirit and values.

Leanne has already had the opportunity to work with many of you and looks forward to building on this and working with many more. She has expressed her admiration for the incredible spirit that defines Newbiggin by the Sea. She believes, as we all do, that our town is not just a place, but a vibrant community filled with dedicated residents and a warmth that makes everyone feel at home. Whether you are a long-time resident or a visitor who has fallen in love with our beautiful town, your contributions make Newbiggin stronger and more united.

I want to share her sentiments about stepping into this new role. Leanne said, ” I am genuinely excited and honoured to step into the role of Town Clerk and Responsible Financial Officer for Newbiggin Town Council. As I embark on this new journey, I am eagerly anticipating the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead. It is a privilege to serve a community that is deeply committed to its growth and well-being, and I too am committed to upholding the highest standards of transparency, communication, and resilience.”

“Working together, I am confident that we can continue to foster a sense of unity and collaboration that will enhance our community. I look forward to engaging with residents, listening to concerns, and building on the strong foundation that has been laid.”

“Thank you for welcoming me into this role, and I look forward to working with each and every one of you to make our town the best it can be.”

Leanne will be instrumental in ensuring the smooth running of our town’s administrative functions and financial management. Her background in local government and her commitment to transparency and efficiency will be invaluable assets as we continue to strive for progress in Newbiggin by the Sea. I am confident that we will continue to build a bright future for our community. Thank you for your support, and please join me in welcoming Leanne Lawson.
