val neal 002Val Neale – Stonnall I have been a Councillor for Stonnall Ward for many years, having lived in the village since 1976. During this time I have, as a member of St Peter’s Church, performed the duties of Church Warden and Pastoral Visitor. I have also served as a School Governor. For many years I was a member of Stonnall Players and for twenty-five years ran a four-part choir – Stonnall Singers (now under new leadership). Together with the late John Mason, I founded the Conservation Society and the Coffee Club, and have served on the committees of the Village Hall, the Playing Field and the Youth and Community Centre. I have also heard readers, trained netball team, and taught French, all in a voluntary capacity at St. Peter’s School. My chief concerns at present are Litter and Traffic, There have been several incidents of litter dropping in hedges and field gateways recently and these have all been reported. Together with LDC, SCC, SCAR and the local council, I have been trying to tackle the matter of the huge vehicles filling our country lanes and blocking roads.

Phil Whitehouse (Stonnall & Little Aston Ward) I have lived in Stonnall for almost 30 years and been actively involved in various community initiatives including being Chairman of Stonnall Campaign About Roads (SCAR) since 2005. My career involved working in the Banking Industry for 25 years and latterly in the financial services industry as a Management Consultant. As a new Parish Councillor, I hope to put this lengthy experience and knowledge to good use and contribute across all areas of the Parish Councils responsibilities.

Road safety and people welfare in general are two key areas that I am interested in and to try to make a real difference to the quality of life in the area. I am also particularly interested in working with the various village groups and to encourage as many residents as possible to be involved in activities that should continue to make the area a great place to live.

Duncan Gleig (Stonnall & Little Aston Ward) I have lived in Stonnall since 2002 – my wife Jayne moved here in 1987. I spent 40 years in HMRC / Inland Revenue, retiring in 2018 as a senior Tax Inspector. The range of jobs during that period, from investigating small traders to international corporates, from leadership and management, from strategy and policy roles, have given me a wealth of experience. The ethos of public service is very important to me; I served 10 years as a governor at The Friary school (including three years as Chair), I volunteer for Blood Bikes (providing a free service to the NHS), I have spent a year marshalling at a covid vaccination centre. Motorbiking is an important relaxation for me; I am currently a ROSPA observer / trainer for advanced riding. I am also Treasurer of Tudor Musical Comedy Society who will be using our Village Hall for rehearsals from January.  

Community is important for all of us – something we saw through the height of the pandemic. Bringing people together and helping each other are a core responsibility for all of us and I hope that being a parish councillor will help me to promote community as well as helping those who need assistance, in whatever way.  I use the Village Hall in Stonnall frequently, most recently as a member of Mint Theatre. Living on Main St I am very aware of traffic issues and the potential for more housing / traffic which will impact across the parish
