I am married to Sarah (a teacher and Deputy Head at a Swindon Primary School) and have three children (Jordan is a Critical Care Nurse, Hannah works in Swindon (and is taking a dance teaching qualification) and 15 year old Will who attends Ridgeway School, is a footballer and newly qualified FA referee.

 

I was a Parish Councillor for 15 years in Wanborough and Chairman for 5 years. I work hard in my community, attend and throw myself into village events including the Village Clean Ups (Liddington as well as Wanborough), Wanborough Summer Show, May Day Fayre, Hooper's Field Sports Open Day.....

 

If you have an issue that requires my help please contact me? I am in and around the villages evenings and weekends and the best way to contact me is to email me initially at gary@ridgewayvillages.co.uk (I receive emails all day) or call my home and leave a message on 01793 790814 

 

 

"My work as a Borough Councillor" 

 

I am Chair of the Children's Health, Social Care & Education Overview and Scrutiny Committee. I am also a member of Planning Commitee, Appointments Committee, Chair of the Archaological Advisory Board, Scrutiny Committee, Growing the Economy Committee and I sit on Cabinet Member Advisory Groups (CMAG's) for the New Eastern Villages and Town Centre Regeneration. I am also a representative on SACRE (Standing Advisory Council on Religious Education). 

 

I am an active member of all of these committee as I believe that if you have been appointed to make a difference then you should do this to the best of your ability. I maintain a 100% attendance at meetings.

 

 

Summer 2016 in Liddington

we celebrated the 90th birthday of Her Majesty the Queen and despite some rain it was a great event. Well done as usual to Tessa for leading on the organisation superbly.
