Mr. J. W. Lloyd, for some years assistant Surveyor of Rushden under the late Mr. W. B. Madin
, was on Wednesday formally appointed Surveyor to the Rushden Urban District Council
; in succession to his former chief; and the capable manner in which he has carried out his duties in the past, both as assistant Surveyor and since Mr. Madin’s regretted demise, as acting Surveyor, is adequate guarantee that the office will be fitted efficiently.
It is interesting to note that Mr. Lloyd’s father (now deceased) was formerly Surveyor at Raunds and that he was subsequently appointed Surveyor of the Thrapston Rural District Council, including, of course, the parishes of Chelveston and Stanwick and many others. Mr. J. W. Lloyd’s brotherMr. A. E. Lloydis Surveyor of the borough of Higham Ferrers, his district joining Rushden on the south and the Thrapston rural district at various points. Mr. J. W. Lloyd has been at the Rushden Surveyor’s office for about 20 years. Thus, in a big area from Rushden and Higham Ferrers to some distance beyond Thrapston the Lloyd family have had an official association over a long period of years.
