Garry Williams

Garry Williams is the Parish Councillor Representative for Upper Boddington on the Parish Plan Steering Group

WHY HAVE I VOLUNTEERED AND WHAT CAN I BRING TO THE PARISH PLAN PROCESS?

I volunteered to offer my experience with the Parish Council, school, church and business to help us to achieve a consensus on the future direction of the village.

My wife Wendy, our two children and I moved into Upper Boddington eighteen years ago, so yes, newcomers! Both children attended the school and benefited from the great start it has given to so many. I was a governor of the school for six years, Chair from 2000 to 2004 during the time of expansion and building.

Within the Parish Council I’m responsible for liaison with the church and I have just taken up the second Parish Council seat on the Jubilee Field Management Group. I’ve just retired from Ford Motor Company after a forty two year career during which we have been fortunate to live and work all over world. Among the many roles I have enjoyed; Finance, Legal and IT Director of Jaguar Land Rover Volvo in Australia and New Zealand, Manager of European Internal Control and Chairman of the Ford Motor Company Ltd Company Pension Funds are the most recent.
