Chairman

I moved to Lower Boddington in 1998 to run the Carpenters Arms with my Wife Jackie. We left there after 4 years and moved to Upper Boddington and later took on the village shop which we ran for 6 years. I have worked in agriculture, construction and haulage and presently work as a landscaper, fencer and general jobbing maintenance man who has worked at many of the properties within the village and through my previous work in the pub and shop, tend to know many of the residents.

Vice Chairman

I retired from Byfield Medical Centre two years ago, and it was my privilege to look after many of you throughout my time there. Having lived and worked in Boddington and the surrounding area for 30 years, I am delighted to have the opportunity to get involved with the Parish Council and give something back to the village which I love and which has been my home for so many years. I am especially keen to try to improve communication with the villagers and help them understand the importance of having our own Parish Council representing our views in local matters.

Representative of Upper Boddington Ward

I have lived in both Upper and Lower Boddington for the majority of my 40 years, my children are the 4th generation in our family to enjoy village life here and attend the local primary school, as I did (albeit many years ago!).

I have been running a successful retail establishment in Banbury for the last 10 years that has been trading for nearly 40 years and currently employs over 15 full time people. I believe the management, team building and people skills required for this will help on the council.

I passionately believe that we need to take responsibility for ensuring that Boddington is a great place to live for current and future generations. If we, as a community, look after our village we will all benefit, socially, financially and environmentally.

Having lived in Frog Lane, Upper Boddington for over 6 years I finally agreed it was time to stand for Parish Council! My husband Gary & I chose to raise a child here and therefore have an interest in both the current workings and the inevitable evolution of the village - ensuring that the community spirit that makes the villages of Upper & Lower Boddington unique is maintained and nurtured via the spaces and facilities that are on offer.

I am a retired Managing Director living in Frog Lane. I came to here in 2007 after a lifetime of living in a large city, this quickly made me realise what a special place Boddington is. By joining the Parish Council I want to be able to help keep not only what we have, but also to ensure that we move forward and try to make the future even better for everyone.

I moved into the village with my wife, Wendy and two children in 1998 when I transferred to a job with Ford Motor Company based in Daventry, so yes, still a newcomer! The children went to Boddington School, benefitting from the great start it has provided to so many. Since we moved here I've been posted to different jobs both far, Australia, and near, Essex, but we've kept Boddington as our home. We are very, very, happy here.
