‘It is a pleasure to be elected as a Parish Councillor for Princethorpe.  I live in Leamington Road with my wife Bex, two daughters, Phoebe & Holly and ‘Mylo’ our Golden Retriever. My family & I moved to the village 5 years ago from Gloucestershire.  We really enjoy living in a semi-rural environment and also really appreciate the sense of community which exists within the village.  My motivation to become a Parish Councillor is held within a passion for maintaining and improving the village and its surroundings.  Having two young children I am also concerned about road safety particularly with two schools in the area.
This is a great village and I’d like to ensure it stays that way!’
