I have lived in Haversham since 1994 and over that time have been involved in most of the communities’ activities, Fete, Mayday, Fireworks, concerts etc. I have 2 grown up children who have now left the village and 1 granddaughter who is non-verbal and has learning difficulties. I am semi-retired and help run a small cake-decorating shop in Newport Pagnell with my wife Chris. I like playing badminton and am member of a pub quiz team.
Responsibilities: – Parish Council Representative on Haversham Social and Community Centre Committee / Website.
I have lived in Haversham since January 1985, and was nine years in Newport Pagnell prior to that. While my children were growing up I was involved in village activities such as the local fete, social centre (I was on the committee for a time), the Road Safety Action Group, the village show – and both children attended the youth club. For the last 18 years I have been employed as an Editor for an in-house publication, the last three years for four days a week rather than full time. I enjoy walking with my dog on the footpaths around Haversham and the surrounding area, and feel incredibly lucky to live in such superb countryside. I have been a Parish Councillor since August 2016.
Responsibilities: – Representative on MK Unitary Authority / Parishes Forum / Speedwatch
I am a mum of two young children who has lived in Haversham since 2009. I moved to the parish from Newport Pagnell where I grew up as a child. I am a very keen gardener who trained in the Horticultural field at college. Before having my family I had a career in managing and running some of our local garden centres. I now help run our family business. As a family we love being outdoors at any given opportunity and can often be found on our local allotment plot, working away in our garden, out enjoying the beautiful local area on walks or bike rides or going away on camping holidays.
Responsibilities: – Parish Council Representative for Local Allotments, Community Exchange Library.
I moved to Haversham at the start of 2020 from London, where I spent 20 years. Prior to this, I lived in South Africa. Having spent a long time in London, I am genuinely grateful for the green space, fresh air and friendly locals in the parish, and I look forward to contributing and giving back to this community. I have a young family, which I hope to grow over the coming years. I have worked in project delivery for over 20 years, with a particular interest in process improvements and helping companies go through transformations.
Responsibilities:- Finance matters and Playground project.
