I moved to this beautiful area of Hampshire in 1982, living in Swanmore, then Droxford, before moving to Bishop's Waltham in 2013.

Bishop's Waltham has been the place that I shopped and attended the Doctors Surgery for these past 36 years and I have always love it, considering it as my home.

I taught geography at Swanmore College for 25 years and know many local people from this time.  After retiring from teaching, I have time to work for our community in other ways; I help at our Foodbank, which is open on Tuesdays from 10am until 3pm at the Youth Hall.

I applied to be a Parish Councillor in 2016, where I was co-opted on to the Council. 

I enjoy being part of this friendly community.

Having grown up in Hampshire, I moved to Bishops Waltham in 2012.  I live with my wife and our two children, who currently attend the local schools. We have enjoyed making this beautiful village our home and I now hope to be able to give something back and support our local community.  My career has largely been in live events, conferencing and exhibitions nationally and internationally, but in recent years has focused more on the facilities and venue management side of things.  I have a passion for all things electronic, including drones, computers, 3d printing, 360 photography and I can often be found taking something apart purely to see how it works.

Born and bred in Bishop's Waltham for the last 38 years.  I live with my wife and two daughters, who attend local schools, and still have all of my close family living in the village too.  I enjoy most sports and can often be found sporting Lycra on a weekend.  My career has seen me spend most of my time working in or around Hampshire Highways as a Quantity Surveyor.  I grew up being involved with a lot of the local groups, so know that there is a real sense of community within Bishop's Waltham.  With everything going on in the world, I now want to try and give something back to ensure that this continues to be a wonderful place to live and enjoy for everyone.

I moved to Bishop’s Waltham in 2012 with my husband and two very young children. My husband grew up in Swanmore and our move to Bishop’s Waltham was a return to his roots in order to bring up our family in such a lovely area.

I can honestly say I am so lucky to have found such great neighbours and a friendly community. I joined the Parish Council in hope that I can be one of the many voices that help shape the Bishop’s Waltham of the future.

I work within the financial advice industry and hope that I can use this knowledge for the benefit of the community.

I grew up in Hedge End and I still have lots of family in the surrounding area, but I left to attend university and then spent my career in finance living variously in London, New York and Hong Kong, before moving with my young family to Bishops Waltham in 2020.   I have two daughters who attend the local schools and the whole family are active in various local clubs and activities. We love to explore the surrounding countryside (and pubs), for which our area is particularly blessed.   I hope to bring to the council my time, energy and life experience to contribute in making and preserving Bishops Waltham as a great place to live for all its residents.

I have lived in Bishop’s Waltham my entire life, just over 31 years. In my early years I went to school in Swanmore and played as a goalkeeper for Bishop’s Waltham Dynamo’s. After leaving college, I began working in A&E at our local hospital, the Royal Hampshire County Hospital in Winchester, so may have at some point patched you up! I ended up working in the hospital for a total of nine years during which I also volunteered with the Bishop’s Waltham Community Responders for 5 years. Due to the increasing pressures on NHS staff, I changed career by studying at Southampton Solent University in Software Development and after graduating, I now work at HMS Collingwood creating digital training media for the Royal Navy. Bishop’s Waltham is my hometown and I, as a Parish Councillor, hope to give back to the community in some way.

My family have been residents of Bishops Waltham for over 30 years, so almost a local. My children attended the local schools and joined in with many of the clubs in Bishop's Waltham.  My husband runs his company locally in Shedfield so we are very invested in where we live. I am an avid walker, with 3 dogs who keep me busy. I also volunteer for the Gateway club and in the past have been a Guider, helped out at primary school with reading, and joined in with various community groups. I look forward to helping our community within the Parish Council.
