Meet Your Councillors

I have lived in Tetbury for almost 27 years and have worked in the town for the last 20 years.

I am married to my husband Simon and we have brought up our two grown up children in Tetbury – they both attended The Ferns Playgroup, St Mary’s Primary School and Sir William Romney’s.

I am proud to have been elected as a member of The Thirteen of Tetbury and I have been actively involved in many organisations over the years in the town, including: Governor at St Mary’s Primary School, Chairman of The Friends of Tetbury Hospital, St Marys’ Church, Tetbury Summer Show and Tetbury Brownies.

After bringing up our family in such a very special town, I want to give something back and will work to make a difference for our town and residents.

Deputy Mayor

I have lived in Tetbury for 15 years since meeting my wife Tracey and have developed a passion for the unique and diverse town we all call home. Previously serving five years on the Town Council and 2 of those as Mayor, after a full career in the Armed Forces I established my own Project Management Consultancy which took me away from Tetbury during the week and this meant I had no choice but to stand down.

I am interested in promoting and improving all aspects of life in Tetbury, from the historic centre with its lively retail and tourism, out to the bustling commercial areas and newly expanding residential developments. It is a time of change and opportunity for our town and we need to grab it with both hands.

A keen motorcyclist, explorer (dog walker would be more accurate) and music enthusiast Tracey and I can often be found enjoying the pleasures that the Cotswolds on two wheels can offer, or enjoying a lazy afternoon with friends in town.

I truly believe that communication and understanding are the key so feel free to stop me for a chat, drop me an email or give me a call.

I moved to Tetbury 23 years ago when I married Brian and during the last 8 years I have served on Tetbury Town Council. I have also served as Mayor for 3 years which was a great honour and I am proud to have achieved this.

I work at Westonbirt School in Operations and enjoy the daily challenges.

I am currently serving on the following Tetbury Town Council Committees of Heritage & Regeneration, Planning and The Goods Shed. I enjoy the various challenges that these diverse groups throw up.

I am proud to be part of Tetbury and the community and look forward to continuing to serve the people of Tetbury.

This is my first experience as a Councillor. I appreciate the opportunity to serve the community that has been so welcoming to me. I have made Tetbury my home for the last five years as it has all the essentials and more!

I am fortunate to work part time in a couple of shops on Long Street. At work I enjoy meeting and chatting to so many people, both local and tourists.

Consequently I have opted to help with Tourism and be part of the Heritage and Regeneration Committee. I aim to help with the further enhancement of this lovely growing town, and those who enjoy its charm and unique attractions – from footpath walks to Woolsack Races!

I became a Tetbury Town Councillor in 2002. In all that time my objective has been to ensure that our town continues to grow and prosper and that the Town Council continues to serve the population to make Tetbury a better place to live and work.

I am fully involved in a number of town organisations and continually enjoy the challenge to make things happen for the benefit of others.

Hobbies, what hobbies? I support Huddersfield Town Football Club, wear an anorak when it comes to railways and make the occasional cake and I am told produce Victoria Sandwiches par excellence. My wife Sue is chief gardener of Tetbury in Bloom and also heavily involved in Christmas in Tetbury, both organisations who do wonders for the appearance of Tetbury.

I have lived in Tetbury for the past 27 years with my wife Sandra.

My wife works in Tetbury as a Childminder and we have 2 teenagers. My daughter is now in Cirencester college and my son is still at Sir William Romney’s. I am involved in Tetbury Rugby Club where I have been coaching for the past 8 years and I am now the Chairman of the Youth Tetbury RFC.

I am keen to make the most of my time on the Council and very keen to have an adequate Youth provision in the town and and I will work very hard to achieve this!

I believe its very easy to take from the system but somebody has to put something back in for the system to keep working and I am happy to do my very best for this beautiful town that we all live in.

I am a fifth generation Tetburian, older Tetburians’ will remember my family who provided me with my moral compass and love of our town. Newer residents will know me from my weekly Wilts and Glos.
