Budleigh’s Fairlynch Museum has given thanks to its much respected treasurer, who has stepped down from the role.

Jim Milverton, who lives in Coastguard Road with wife Ruth, has been treasurer for more than six years.

Looking after the museum’s finances has often been complicated by issues arising from maintenance of the historic Grade II listed building, but Jim has proved to be a steady guiding hand, according to museum chairman Roger Sherriff.

He said: “The most important position in any board of trustees is that of treasurer. Fairlynch has been very fortunate to have a treasurer like Jim.After more than six years as treasurer, he is leaving the museum’s finances well and truly in the black. We will miss his wise counsel and gentle good humour and we wish him and Rose well for the future.”

Jim’s successor as treasurer is Nick Speare.

Farewell gifts from Jim’s fellow trustees included a bottle of fine wine and a garden voucher.
