My wife and I moved to the villagein 2008, 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.    Disclosable Pecuniary Interests

I have lived in the village since 1994, I have been a committed member of the Parish Council for many years, I was on the Neighbourhood Plan Committee which we strenuously uphold as a Parish Council. More recently instigated Long Compton Flood Group with the National Flood Forum and latterly with Shipston Area Flood Action Group, this is an ongoing project and hopefully one day we may be able to control the flood water

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.Disclosable Pecuniary Interests

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. Disclosable Pecuniary Interests

I have lived in Long Compton since 2012,  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 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 developersDisclosable Pecuniary Interests

I moved to Long Compton in 2018, having lived over the border in Oxfordshire since 2007.  I now work as a hypnotherapist.  After a career in accountancy and contract management, I worked in the care sector as a foster carer and care manager.  I’m very keen on ensuring that the Neighbourhood Plan is respected particularly in planning decisions.
