Town Clerk & Responsible Financial Officer

My name is Mike Slaughter and I took up the post as the first Town Clerk to Ashington Town Council in September 2009.  I am the first point of contact for all matters related to the work of the Town Council.  

I was born here, attended local schools and have over 30 years experience in senior council work in Northumberland with the former Wansbeck District Council and Castle Morpeth Borough Council where I worked closely with Parish and Town Councils.

I am genuinely delighted to have the opportunity to work both for and with the Town Council in seeking to improve and develop local services and facilities in Ashington.  

In my somewhat limited spare time I try to get out and about playing guitar in local pubs and watching football - if you do see me around and want to either chat or 'bend my ear' about Ashington, please feel free to do so - I'd like that.
