Born in Uxbridge, 1 of 4 children, I always wanted to help the community in which I lived. I have lived in Datchet since 1981 I have had active roles with Mother toddler groups, Datchet Youth Club, 2nd Datchet Scouts and Churchmead School, I have two boys who both attended the local schools and who have both achieved excellent qualifications. My Husband David has lived in the village all his life except for 5 years. I would like the Parish Council to be seen as doing things and not just promising to do things.

My first love is gardening then current affairs. I think very deeply and often write down my thoughts by way of a poem. I am intensely inquisitive and will not give up on any matter until I am satisfied I have got to bottom of it. I have always had an urgent need to put right anything that is wrong. In my youth I was a member of CND and protested vigorously.

I am very observant and open minded that's why I like a good debate and my final decision will be well thought out, never rushed. 

I would like to see Datchet work as well as it possibly can as a whole community. All our local businesses should prosper for the benefit of the village and St.Mary's and Churchmead schools should prosper for our local students.

I strongly believe that none of my wishes for the village should come at the cost of Datchet's own natural beauty.

I came to live in Datchet as a newly-wed in 1979, having worked in the Horticultural industry most of my life. I currently run two companies distributing own brand - Darlac - Horticultural Tools & Equipment to both wholesale via Garden Centres and on-line companies, & retail markets - via Shows & Exhibitions. It came to my attention that Datchet residents had not had the opportunity to vote for their Parish Council for several decades, and talking around the village recognised that a large number of residents wanted change. I feel that having run my own companies and serving on the committee of the Horticultural Exhibitors Association for 15 years, I could share my experience to benefit the village. My aims while on council will be to promote interaction with village residents, reduce costs wherever possible and try to ensure that the voice of the village is heard.

I love living in Datchet. Datchet is a very special place with a very special openhearted community - events like the Datchet Fete and Christmas Lights on the Green bring our special bond as a community to life.

The reason I put myself forward for election to the Datchet Parish Council is that I want to give back to our great village and its parishioners in tangible and meaningful ways, from flood prevention to the upkeep of our lovely grounds, from community events to ensuring safety on our roads and pavements. I want to ensure that we engage our younger parishioners more actively, finding new ways to inspire thriving minds full of ambition and drive. I will also do everything I can to ensure arts and sport are strongly represented in the village for the enjoyment of the whole community, both as participants and spectators. Any parish council should be representative of the people who live within the parish. It was my view that Datchet Parish Council needed a broader mix of individuals who, by coming together as an effective team can act as the democratic voice of the community, focusing on the priorities and needs of the village. My goal is to help the council put the community at the heart of all village decisions. We represent the community and we act for the benefit of the community.

I look forward to meeting with many of you over the next few months and I am very keen to hear what you think.

I have been a member of the Council for 11 years, and still feel there is plenty of work to be done at this level of government, since we live among the people we represent. I am especially concerned to make sure that we hear and represent the voices of people living at the fringes of the village, such as the far ends of Slough Road, London Road and Horton Road and all the small estates in between, whose voices are not heard as much as we would like. I think that this will bring the village together and so make for a stronger community.

Born in 1950 I lived in Wraysbury (as did my parents and grandparents before me) until 1970. As the eldest of seven children I am pleased to say that many of my relatives still live there. After short periods of living in Slough and Langley I moved with my family to Datchet in 1977. I have three children and eight grandchildren.

As a qualified engineer I worked at Ford Motor Co., EMI at Hayes and Graviners at Colnbrook prior to working in Wraysbury since 1994. First elected to Datchet Parish Council in July 1986 I was Chairman 1992/5. I was actively involved in the village centre refurbishment in 1990 which resulted in a ‘Best Kept Village’ award and I represented the village at the six week Maidenhead Windsor and Eton flood alleviation scheme Public Inquiry at Reading in 1992.

I stood for re-election to Datchet Parish Council in the hope that a new Council would do better in representing the electorate. In particular I am concerned about development on Green Belt and about the protection and maintenance of Village assets. I believe that all village land should be publicly accessible, that the village greens should be watered when necessary and that parishioner should be aware of the impact of existing flood alleviation proposals.

I have detailed knowledge of Jubilee River design, structural and operational shortcomings and I intend to submit evidence at the forthcoming River Thames Scheme (Datchet to Teddington) Inquiry due in about three years time. If constructed the RTS will be the largest, most complex and most expensive fluvial flood alleviation scheme ever constructed in this country and I will do my utmost to ensure that the Environment Agency does not repeat the mistakes of the past.
