A WOMAN who moved to St Neots after falling in love with it on a camping trip eight years ago is to become the town's new centre manager.
Elaine Thody will take on the role of St Neots town centre manager on April 2, and her first task will be to attend the public meeting at the Priory Centre to discuss the Peter Rowley £1million gift.
She told The Hunts Post: "I think St Neots is a really charming town that has retained its character. It is an exciting time to take on this role because of the development at Loves Farm and Mr Rowley's £1million. A lot is happening in the town."
Having started her career as an economist, Ms Thody has been working as a freelance IT consultant for the past 15 years for a number of well-known organisations, including the BBC and the Law Society.
She first came to St Neots on a weekend camping trip about eight years ago and was so impressed she kept coming back. Eventually she moved to the town.
"I'm really looking forward to getting to grips with the challenges of being the new town centre manager. St Neots is an attractive town and a vibrant community, facing many new opportunities and challenges. I hope that I can help the town to realise its potential in future years."
Once settled in her job, she is hoping to work with businesses and the town council to organise the St Neots Day celebrations next July to honour all things associated to the town.
