ABOUT US

The Parish Council is the first tier of local government and our Council consists of 7 members (Councillors) and the Clerk. We meet on the first Tuesday of each month, usually at the Loft, located above the village shop. All meetings are open to the public and we welcome your attendance and participation.

TEAM

CHAIRMAN

I have lived in the village (almost) my entire life, being born the very same day my parents moved to the village, where they also still remain. After spending nearly 10 years away for university and work, I returned to the village in 2012 with my wife. I joined the Council in order to do more for the community and in particular, to represent the younger generation in the parish. I work as a lawyer, and outside of this, I am involved with Brockweir CIC and enjoy walking my dogs and clay shooting.

COUNCILLOR

I have lived in Brockweir for the past eight years with my partner and two children (aged 8  and 6), and before that I lived slightly further up the Wye valley in Penallt for a further 10 years, after having grown up on Dartmoor. I have always loved rural areas and I think the one in which I now live is particularly special. It is partly for that reason that I decided to join the Parish Council, to try and help protect what it is that makes it so special, but at the same time, being able to help ensure the greatest possible future for the parish was also important to me. I’d also love to try and get more people involved with the Parish Council. I currently run a company producing custom bicycle frames right here in the Wye Valley, and alongside cycling I also love to swim, cook, and generally try and make the most of where we live.

COUNCILLOR

I have lived in the village all my life and attended Brockweir school and the grammar schools in Coleford. I married a local person Bryan Harris and had one son who is currently living in London-I've no idea why!  I am passionate about the area and very involved in many voluntary jobs with many different interests. I was widowed in 2012 and now live in my mother's cottage with an assortment of animals. I continue to work part-time just to completely fill up my week.
