WESTON stands on the brink of a momentous year, with huge changes and tough challenges ahead.

In 12 months' time, the town's physical appearance will be markedly different, with a new pier almost complete, work underway on the Tropicana, and substantial alterations to the seafront layout.

All this comes amid an ongoing climate of financial uncertainty and fresh portents of economic gloom on the horizon - which is why we believe we can all take reassurance from Weston Town Council's choice of new clerk.

Malcolm Nicholson boasts not only vast experience of local politics and legal issues, but has also lived in Weston for nearly two decades.

At a time when the town needs to make astute decisions with clear goals in mind, Mr Nicholson's appointment should help us all feel that we are being steered in the right direction.

At a time when so many politicians, public figures and civil servants are being slated for wringing every possible penny from the taxpayers' gravy train, this enthusiasm for the challenges ahead is refreshing.

We believe this demonstrates a firm commitment to play an important role in the town's future at a pivotal time.

With Weston steering an ambitious course through turbulent waters, it's good to see a sensible and seasoned head at the helm.
