365 days of gratitude

At JP training tonight the discussion about payment of service came up.

JPs are not permitted to take payment (except when asked by a returning Officer to assist with an election process).

Community service, by JPs and many other people whether in official roles or not,  is voluntary and unpaid and I’m grateful that there are still plenty of people willing and able to do it.

    Didn’t realise you were a JP as well as all the other responsibilities that you have. Are there enough hours in a day for you or is it all down to incredible time management.

    You’re an inspiration to us all Ele. Make sure you make enough time to keep this excellent blog going. We lost Homepaddock and I would really be upset if we lost you as well.

    Living in the country means my JP duties are very light. Appointments are made so people don’t have to travel very far to find a JP and if you live in a sparsely populated area there aren’t a lot of people needing the service.

    Not sure what you mean by you lost Homepaddock? I’m blogging less than I used to but haven’t given up.

    Sorry Ele, I meant Keeping Stock, not you.
