In 1986, Matlock Town Hall caretaker Cliff Britland hung up his broom for the last time.
On his retirement, he gave a farewell wave from the balcony where many VIPs had stood before him.
He was appointed to Matlock Urban District Council in 1963, continuing with West Derbyshire District Council following the re-organisation in 1974.
