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. 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.

Stonnall has been home since 2018 and it’s so different from living on a busy road in Four Oaks! At first I found the quite daunting, but now I love it and soon came to realise the peace and the friendly community feel were something worth protecting and fighting for! And to cut a long story short, that was how I ended up standing for election in May 2023, and ultimately being co-opted on to the Parish Council.I’ve an eclectic background which will hopefully help in the team’s endeavours: many different sorts of people-centred charity work, and also acting, presenting, journalism and sales careers. Since 2014 I’ve been a professional funeral and wedding celebrant: with over 1,500 services to my credit (including many in the village), I’ve been exposed to many moving, enlightening and testing situations, so again – I hope that may come in useful. In addition to writing, I enjoy dog walking; making music; reading and socialising. I look forward to being of help to the community and meeting some new people through this
