Standing for the Steventon & the Hanneys Ward

MatthewBarber300

I am born and bred in the Vale of White Horse and live in West Hanney with my wife and our two small children. I know the problems facing our local community because they are the same problems that I face week in week out, but I believe that by working together we can make a real change locally. Since the Conservatives have been running the local District Council things have been steadily improving. Services have got better despite an age of austerity and taxes have been held down.

With your support I want to continue to lead our strong team working for you to improve our community. We will continue to manage your money responsibly, remembering that every penny the Council spends is raised from hard working taxpayers.

Undoubtedly the greatest challenge facing the Vale at the moment is the pressure for new housing. Villages across this ward have seen speculative development go ahead due to the lack of a Local Plan. That is why I have driven forward the new plan that will give stability to planning in the district. The Local Plan itself will bring a new set of challenges, but it will put us in a stronger position to control development and secure the infrastructure we so badly need.

Only with your support can we continue this work. Please vote Conservative on Thursday 7th May and help us make our district an even better place to live.

  • Improving access to affordable housing, especially for our young people
  • Improving the Transport infrastructure to reduce traffic congestion
  • Ensuring that your Council Tax continues to be spent efficiently

PICT0026aALICE BADCOCK: Having lived in the town all of my life it has been a privilege to represent the Caldecott ward over the past 4 years on Abingdon-on-Thames Town Council.  I work full time but also am a lead coach within a local netball club currently coaching the High 5  (Primary School age) and Under 15 teams.  I also work to help under 18s achieve Duke of Edinburgh Awards and GCSE qualifications.  I enjoy getting involved in community activities and have been the driving force in Fun and Music in the Park.  I have been fighting relentlessly against additional housing on the Drayton Road. I requested that Public Meetings be held by the Town Council to inform everyone about the process to be followed and keep people informed of what was happening.  I also spoke at County Council against the Proposed Crossings on Ock Street and Marcham Road.

Only with your support can we continue this work. Please vote Conservative on Thursday 7th May and help us make our district an even better place to live.


Sandy Lovatt & Andy Todd
Standing for the Abingdon Dunmore Ward

DSC00687aSANDY LOVATT: In the next four years we will be facing a number of challenges. It is my aim as your candidate for the Dunmore Ward to deliver the changes needed to meet demands of the future. I also want to provide the facilities that will make Abingdon a prosperous and vibrant market town. This means ensuring that we have the means to fix the traffic issues on the Dunmore Road by ensuring we create the funding to build a four-way junction at lodge hill and fix the access problems on Dunmore Road. Only the Conservatives have the plans and ability to achieve this.

Monica Lovatt & Chris Palmer
Standing for the Abingdon Fitzharris Ward

DSC00722aMONICA LOVATT: I have been a Fitzharris resident for 27 years and represented the ward on the Vale Council for eight years and the Town Council for 12 years, serving as Mayor in 2012-13. I am a volunteer caseworker for SSAFA, a military charity looking after those serving, ex-serving and their families in need.

The Councils have worked to improve services and increase footfall and prosperity in Abingdon. Future developments will be the Guildhall, Abbey Meadow and the Old Goal, with public consultation and important decisions to be made.

As a Councillor I like to be quick in my responses to people and to listen to them. I am diligent attending meetings and contributing to them. I would be honoured to continue to serve you.

CHRIS PALMER: I am a chemist by training  and I have lived in Abingdon since January 2003. In my spare time I enjoy photography and walking and am a member of the National Trust.  I am also a deacon at Abingdon Baptist Church and for several years have coordinated our part in the nationwide shoebox appeal working with local schools and voluntary organisations.  In November 2011 I was appointed a governor at John Mason School, where I serve on the Finance and Audit committees.  Over the last 4 years we have worked to make Abingdon a great place to live and work  – together we can make it even better.  I am convinced my main responsibility if elected will be to  continue the work with the organisations who do so much in our communities to enable them to work effectively.

Standing for the Blewbury & Harwell Ward

IMG_3356a

We are standing for re-election as your District Councillors because we really care about the villages where you live and we live as well.

Since the Conservatives have been running the Council things have been steadily improving, but some problems remain and we want to sort them out for you.

We have saved a lot of your money and kept your Council Tax down.
We will continue to manage your money responsibly. That is what Conservatives do best.

Please help us in this by voting Conservative on 7th May.

With your support I want to be part of that strong team working for you to improve our community. We will continue to manage your money responsibly, remembering that every penny the council spends is raised from hard working taxpayers.

Only with your support can we continue this work. Please vote Conservative on Thursday 7th May and help us make our district an even better place to live.

HardimanADAM HARDIMAN: I proposed the motion rejecting Doric’s original proposal for re-development which was carried unanimously. Since then I have fought for Doric to revise their proposals including the need to provide a better Community Hall.

I have always been in favour of the Skate Park Project and other leisure facilities. I supported the plans for a feasibility study for this and supported the motion to include the provision of sports facilities for people of all ages. I was part of the previous council that installed the MUGA and other sports and leisure facilities.

I supported the Botley fete and proposed the motion that the Parish council should give a £500 grant. After much initial opposition my motion was carried .


Leigh Munro & Julian Wheatland
Standing for Cumnor

LEIGH MUNRO: I am standing for election as your District Councillor because I care about the community where I live, work and have chosen to bring up my young family.

I have been involved in politics at national and local levels for over 15 years and have the energy and experience to speak up and help with local issues.
Having lived both in central Oxford and now in the Vale I understand the unique issues and stresses faced by Cumnor Ward, being close to Oxford but wanting to maintain its own character.

Please vote Conservative on 7th May and help us make our district an even better place to live.

JULIAN WHEATLAND: I’ve been a resident of Cumnor for 7 years; my children have grown up here and my wife works in the community. You’ll see me walking (sometimes running and cycling) around the ward and I understand the issues and stresses of living this close to Oxford while maintaining the character of Cumnor, Farmoor and Dean Court.

Good transport links are essential for us, but limiting the through traffic is equally as important. We need a safe environment for our children to play and elderly to walk; and we need good access to modern amenities, including superfast broadband in all homes and businesses. Let me represent you in the Vale.


Stuart Davenport
Standing for Drayton Ward

DavenportBorn and raised on a working farm in Warwickshire I moved to Scotland to take a degree in Veterinary Medicine from Edinburgh University. Since then I have worked as a practising vet in Hertfordshire, Oxfordshire and now West Berkshire. I currently work exclusively with small animals.

I live in Drayton with Elizabeth, who works for a large law firm in Oxford. We have a dog and two cats. I am a member of the Drayton Parish Council. In my spare time I enjoy cricket, travelling abroad and walking in the countryside.

As your councillor I would be a strong voice for the area, ensuring our views were not sidelined but heard around the top table. The village has invested a great deal of time and resource in producing a Neighbourhood Plan. If elected I would ensure the planning department did not forget the prominence of this document when adjudicating on planning issues.


Roger Cox & Mohinder Kainth
Standing for Faringdon Ward

Group1aROGER COX: Let me tell you about myself. I have lived in Faringdon for 20 years. My whole working life, both in the Royal Air Force and on the staff at the Defence Academy, has been dedicated to public service. Since first elected in 2003, I have represented you as a District Councillor. I am Deputy Leader of the Council, cabinet member for planning development and for health, environment and housing. I am also a Town Councillor and Chair of Governors at the Infant School.

I am contacted regularly by local people to help resolve problems ranging from bin collection to homelessness. With your vote, I will continue to work for you.

MOHINDER KAINTH: I have lived in Faringdon for over 17 years with my wife and two children. During the last 20 years I have held a number of senior positions within a range of industries. I currently work for an international consultancy, based in Oxford.

I am passionate about listening and acting upon your concerns as I am focussed on doing my utmost to improve the quality of life of all our residents.


Chris McCarthy & Ben Mabbett
Standing for Grove North Ward

I am currently a scout leader with Grove Scout Group, play the trombone with Wantage Silver Band and I am involved in Grove Parish Church. I am also currently an active member of Wantage Town Council and have been involved in the improvements to the town. If I am elected as your District Councillor I will work tirelessly to ensure this wonderful village where I have grown up continues to be a safe, healthy area where people will be proud to bring up their families.

image001CHRIS McCARTHY: As Chairman of Grove Rugby Club and a family man with 6 children. I have been heavily involved in local activities since we moved here over 10 years ago.

If I am elected as your councillor I will continue the work I have been doing within the community such as organiser of the Diamond Jubilee event, which provided a focus for families to come together and celebrate as one community.

I want all our families to grow up in a safe and integrated environment and will fight to ensure the developers pay for the desperately needed infrastructure to support the new housing in the area.

Ed BlagroveED BLAGROVE: I lived in Radley with my wife and have grown to love the village life, with the occasional trip to the local for a game of pool or to watch the football, and taking in the wonderful area in which we live.  I am a keen charity runner having completed several half marathons and the 2014 London marathon, raising money for various charities such as Children with Cancer UK, the British Heart Foundation, the MS Society and most recently for the Abingdon based charity Blue Skye Thinking (I will be taking part in three back-to-back Sunday Half Marathons in March for Blue Skye Thinking).  I also have a passion for theatre, having performed with and directed the Abingdon Operatic Society in recent years along with several Oxford based groups.

Eric Batts
Standing for Kingston Bagpuize Ward

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAI am proud to have been selected as candidate for the Kingston Bagpuize Ward at the coming Vale elections. Before moving here recently, I knew the area having friends living in the village and surrounding area. In fact my first choice location on moving from Botley was Kingston Bagpuize with Southmoor, and no I don’t live in one of the new homes in the village.

Since settling here I have gained a much greater in-depth understanding of the issues that the area faces, and the fact that over the next few years we will face even more challenges.
I am currently the Vice Chairman of the Vale Council, and at the recent Vale awards event it was a delight to see village residents receive awards.

During the next few weeks I intend to visit as many of you as possible. I know some people say you only see politicians at election time but I can assure you that I’m not that sort of councillor and if elected will be reporting back to you regularly.

I ask for your support on May 7th.


Shaun Ward
Standing for Marcham Ward

DSCF0110aHaving served six years in the Army (REME) and then working with the MoD as a consultant on C Vehicle PFI & direct support to operations (Iraq/Afghanistan) for five years, I feel I am more than capable of understanding the needs of a constituency with a heavy Army presence. Likewise, I have the ability to get results from large organisations, such as local government, which can often seem frustratingly bound up in red tape.

I currently run my own small business in the private sector, and know that grit and determination are required to make a success of such ventures. This means I have a unique understanding of being your representative on the District Council, dealing with issues such as bureaucracy, and remaining focused on the results we need to achieve.

I am a strong believer in opportunities being offered and hard work being rewarded, in standing up for the rights of the individual and not letting bureaucracy and inertia stifle innovation and creativity.

I believe in protecting tradition while modernizing the greatness of this country – the things we all can be justly proud of, like our Armed Forces, NHS, engineering & science sectors. We should be encouraging a culture of enterprise so that hard work is justly rewarded, and creating more employment and training opportunities for every member of our community.


Yvonne Constance
Standing for the Ridgeway Ward

20150124_105118(0)aResident near Kingston Lisle for 30 years I’ve been Vale Councillor for the old ward of Craven since 2003, and County Councillor for Shrivenham Division since 2013, so I’m already very active in your villages in the new Ridgeway Ward and well connected with your parish councils.

Locally I’ve achieved a new speed limit for Letcombe Regis; repairs for many local roads; managed road closures of A420 and A417; ‘saved’ the Stanford Tip; saved free school transport for Letcombe Regis (and Shrivenham/Watchfield); fought for planning defences in East Challow and Uffington; kept up pressure for better broadband, and contributed to the Vale’s Local Plan, S106 policy and CIL, and to County’s new transport plan.

I aim to get things done!


 

Robert Sharp
Standing for the Stanford & Uffington

Robert electaI was born in Wantage and have lived and worked in the Vale of White Horse all my life, moving to Shellingford in 1961 where four generations of my family now live.

I have been the District Councillor for the Stanford Ward, covering Stanford-in-the-Vale, Hatford and Shellingford, since 2003 and chairman of the planning committee since 2011. I also serve on many other committees including Faringdon Traffic Advisory, Faringdon Joint Economic Forum, West Area Committee, Stanford Community Bus.

I enjoy watching many sports and in my younger days played football and cricket locally and also ran in marathons. I am a member of Faringdon Rotary Club and a governor of Wantage Town Lands Almhouses.

Following the reduction in the numbers of District Councillors, from 51 to 38, the Stanford Ward has been joined by the villages of Uffington, Baulking and Woolstone to form a larger ward and with your support I look forward to continuing to serve all the residents. I believe I have a track record of getting things done and I care passionately about the area in which we all live, work and raise our families.


Gervase Duffield
Standing for Sutton Courtenay & Appleford

IMG_8406aGervase Duffield has lived in Appleford since the 1960s; his family have been in the area for over 3 centuries, the family home being what is now Denman College in Marcham. He began his education locally first in Abingdon and then at Cothill; he graduated from Lincoln College, Oxford, and did post-graduate research at Trinity Hall, Cambridge; he is married to Elizabeth, daughter of a Christ Church science academic. For twenty years he represented Oxford diocese in the Church of England’s national Synod at Westminster. Gervase has been a Vale councillor for nearly 12 years.

His professional life has been divided between running an academic publishing group, collecting an academic library of some 50,000+ books specialising in early modern history (one of the biggest UK private libraries), and investment finance in the City.
His attention is now devoted to the Vale, to preserve as much as possible the rural village character of Sutton Courtenay and Appleford against an army of unwelcome developers, ruthless bureaucrats, and some unhelpful government directives, all of which seem aimed at flooding our green field sites across the South East with masses of badly planned housing developments. Of course people need housing, and it needs to be housing ordinary people can afford; few would dispute that, but I think we need better use of our existing land, not the sort of creeping urbanisation which is being forced upon us. I am currently trying to persuade a developer to put small blocks of less expensive one and two bedroom flats into the Didcot A site. That is a large brownfield area which we must use to the full for housing lest we lose yet more green fields. Most of the planning attacks have come on Sutton Courtenay as a larger village, but believe me they will shortly be coming to smaller villages like Appleford.


Anthony Hayward
Standing for the Thames Ward

DSC00608aI have been a District Councillor for the Longworth Ward for 8 years now. The new expanded and amended Thames ward welcoming Appleton and Eaton, and Fyfield and Tubney parishes to the ward, represents a new opportunity for me to engage with new faces and parishes and to continue to represent the core principles and values of the Conservative party.

I have been a key member of the Vale planning committee for all those 8 years , overseeing large housing developments in the Wantage, Grove and Didcot areas and refusing overdevelopment at Botley shopping centre. I am an architect with my own practice in the area, and find this offers helpful assistance to the committee.
The ward has thankfully seen little development over my term despite the impending introduction of the new local plan. The Longworth parishes progression of their neighbourhood action plan is welcome, and will assist the process of enabling any new housing to be located where the villagers wish, not where developers wish.

I have lived in the area for over 23 years and am happily married with 3 grown up children. I have enjoyed serving you for these past 8 years and look forward to the current wards continuing support and to new electors support at the election.


Bill Jones & Julia Reynolds
Standing for Wantage & Grove Brook Ward

jonesbillBILL JONES: I have lived in the Wantage area for 35 years and now live in the town centre. I served as a Police Officer for 30 years including a period as Chief Inspector in charge of Wantage and Faringdon Police Stations, and spent 10 years as a Community Safety Officer at the Vale District Council.

For the past 4 years I have served The Hendreds Ward so am very aware of the challenges facing Wantage and Grove over the coming years. I will hold developers to account and ensure they meet their infrastructure obligations.

 

101AJULIA REYNOLDS: I have lived in Wantage since 1985 and worked at the Harwell Campus for 32 years. I ran the Summer Festival for 15 years and I’m a volunteer at the Vale & Downland Museum. I served as a Wantage town councillor for eight years and as a District councillor for four years. I stood down in 2011, but was re-elected in 2013 and 2014.

My previous years on the councils were as a Lib Dem, but I stood for Conservative in 2014 as I was so impressed with the vastly improved team work between the Councils, planning officers and the Chamber of Commerce and that things now get done instead of just empty talk.

Henry Spencer
Standing for the Wootton Ward

IMG_1605aI have lived in the Vale of the White Horse for most of my life and attended local schools. Having graduated from the University of Durham last year, with a degree in Politics, I am currently pursuing a career in law. As a local resident, like you, I want to see the community we live in thrive, whilst retaining traditional rural charm and values.

Whilst passionate about the protection of the rural environment, I understand the need of small communities like ours to have constantly improving access to modern services and amenities.

My youthful energy and enthusiasm, together with experience working on local infrastructure projects alongside a parliamentary candidate can, I believe, enable me to make a positive impact on the lives of local residents. I will work to sustain and improve our community facilities, expand local transport links and support local businesses but, most importantly, I will listen and respond to your needs and concerns.

Driven to give back to my local community in any way that I can, it would be a privilege to work with a team that has consistently frozen Council Tax, delivered infrastructure and invested both time and money in supporting local residents in the causes which matter most to them.
