New assistant warden for town

A TOWN has welcomed a new assistant town warden despite a cut in funding.

John Bushby took up his new role in Berkhamsted on Tuesday January 4, alongside current town warden John Watts.

The appointment came despite an announcement in November revealing that a total of 25 per cent was to be axed from the Concurrent Services Grant, which is awarded to town and parish councils to pay for wardens.

Both Wardens will both work 15 hours a week each, dealing with a variety of town issues.
