Feedback from attendees:

I enjoyed the course very much. The other clerks were lovely. I could have gobbled up all of your time with questions! Great content.

Nothing needs improving - it was perfect!

Brilliant, very beneficial and really enjoyed it. I have a better understanding and learnt so much.

It was well designed, ran at a pace for all, continually checked understanding with all delegates.

Most beneficial.

Very useful and I was able to set up my next agenda for the next Town Council with no changes from the Town Clerk.
