I have lived in Long Compton since 1987 and have participated in a number of its social and sporting groups. Since my retirement last year I have now the time to put something back into the village.

I want to see the village continue to thrive as a community, welcoming new villagers, making provision for our younger families and ensuring that our older inhabitants are able to continue to live here as long as possible. Long Compton is a great place to grow up and live in – our job as the parish council is to make sure it stays that way.

I was born and bred in Chipping Norton and lived in Long Compton for over twenty years.  I have always been interested in planning and development issues and now my daughter is at University I have the time to dedicate.

I am currently on village hall committee and strong supporter of village events.

I moved to Long Compton almost two years ago when I retired from my business.  I would like to see the village develop as a vibrant community with an active social core.  My hope is that the new village website will go some way to achieving this end.                     

I am concerned about speeding traffic and would like to see some proactive measures taken to address this problem.

I have been in and around Long Compton since 1971, and lived down in the village since 1992.    My husband died in October 2007, and shortly afterwards I saw the advertisement for a Clerk to the Council, and knowing that I was going to be made redundant at the end of December that year, decided to give it a go.     I retired last December after seven years as Clerk, but not wishing to divorce myself entirely from the Council, decided to stand for election as a Councillor in May, and here I am.   I will do my best to make the correct decisions for the good of the village and its residents.

My wife and I have lived in the village for 12 years.  I was brought up as part of a farming family and worked in the building trade for 40 years.  I have always been interested in rural issues and now have the time to become involved.  All it took was someone to twist my arm !

My wife and I moved to the village 8 years ago, and have two young children, the eldest now at Acorns school. I am the Assistant Farm Manager on a local Estate, and aim to draw on my practical experience of living and working in and around Long Compton to ensure it continues as a thriving working village.

I have lived in Long Compton for four years but first came to the area in 1973.  I am enjoying my retirement from work as an independent educational consultant, and make a small contribution to village life as keeper of the church clock and as village editor for 'The Link' magazine.  As a Councillor, I am staunch supporter of the Neighbourhood Development plan, and will work hard to resist the efforts of opportunist developers

I moved to Long Compton with my husband in 2010. We now have a daughter who attends Acorns Primary School.  Prior to this, I lived in the South East where I had a career in the healthcare industry.  This was in contrast to my childhood, which was spent growing up on a farm in rural Somerset.  I now hope to put my professional skills and love of the countryside to use for the benefit of our village.
