A Parish Councillor can really make a difference. My main interest was to prevent inappropriate development, improve the leisure facilities and encourage people to participate in the arts and sport. I have been able to do a great deal towards achieving those aims and having spent three years as the Chairman of the Council – almost a full-time job – I have been able to make a difference in other areas. Anyone interested in becoming a Parish Councillor will find it very rewarding, exciting, sometimes frustrating, but in the main very satisfying.

I was elected in 2012, when a vacancy arose. Prior to that I had only a vague idea of what the Council does for the community – in terms of providing facilities, outdoor spaces and an official voice in planning and development issues. I have taken a particular interest in promoting and improving the facilities managed and events held by the Parish for its residents, including the Parish Festival, and in developing the Parish website (a work in progress). I support improvement to the Abbey Flyer line through the Community Rail Partnership, and strongly oppose any development that detracts from our village status. In my experience, Councillors are most effective when they are independents, working together solely in the community’s interest.

Council Representative on Outside Organisation

I was elected as a Councillor four years ago and during this time I have been passionate about retaining our Green Belt land. I have been intrinsically involved in reviewing planning applications so that developments are not overpowering and that green spaces are retained. In addition my priorities include ensuring that our leisure facilities are affordable and well maintained. I am also keen to develop local businesses and local talent and have been instrumental in establishing a biannual festival. I believe that by working energetically and by listening and responding to your views together we can continue to make real improvements to our village.
