After her last day of work in the Chief Executive's Department at Test Valley Borough Council, Claire Chidley held a farewell party at the Lights in Andover.
"I associate Claire with Andover Vision where, with Des Benjamin, she helped raise our sights and paint a picture of where Andover could be in a few years time. Without her enthusiasm and stamina, we would never have completed the task."
Claire is leaving TVBC to join Comedia as a partner. Comedia is a think tank and cultural regeneration organisation which was influential in producing Andover Vision.
"I am also grateful to Claire for a different reason; she was the returning officer for North West Hants at the last General Election, and completed the count in record time."
