Responsibilities: The Clerk is employed by the Council to provide administrative support for the Council's activities and to be a point of contact for residents of and visitors to the village. Her primary responsibility is to advise the Council on whether its decisions are lawful and to recommend ways in which decisions can be implemented. She can be asked to research topics of concern to the residents and the Council and provide unbiased information to help the Council to make appropriate choices. The Clerk is also the Responsible Financial Officer and as such is responsible for all financial records of the Council and the careful administration of its finances.
Victoria has lived in Oakley for almost 12 years, initially with her husband and their cocker spaniel, and now with her two young children who keep her on her toes! Victoria worked for Barclays Corporate for 16 years before taking a career break in 2019. Since 2021 she has been lucky enough to work around her children within the village, which includes 12 hours a week at St Leonard's managing the Centre bookings and supporting the PCC Treasurer with various finance responsibilities, being a governor at the Infant school and Treasurer of their PTA. Victoria's spare time is spent running, walking and gardening, whenever possible!

Our Litter Wardens are Jeff Eastick and Stephen Dyer.
Jeff has lived in Oakley since the early 1970's and has worked for the Parish Council for many years emptying the bins and clearing litter from the central area of the village - around the shops and the school.
Stephen lives in Basingstoke and has worked for us since 2014, clearing the bins on the outer edges of the village - Beach Park, Peter Houseman Ground and Newfound.
Between them they work twenty five hours a week, emptying a total of 63 bins - some of them more than once a week! They are also invaluable in reporting areas around the village requiring the Clerk's attention.
