His father was mayor for a small town in Devon, and told him that being on a parish council would be interesting. He trained as a mechanical engineer, but decided pretty quickly that computers were more interesting.

He has been a volunteer for the Thames Rescue service for over 10 years, regularly keeping pleasure boats out of the way of the G&S regatta and similar events in the local area.

Michael grew up in Goring and went to the local primary school, and then to secondary school in Wallingford. He moved to Streatley when he married his wife Kim 20 years ago, and has been here ever since. For the last 18 years the Royal Mail has been keeping him occupied as postman and supervisor.

I joined Streatley Parish Council because I feel very passionate about where I live, and feel very fortunate to live in an area of outstanding natural beauty. To be able to enjoy the ancient/historic footpaths & bridleways that we have is a delight. This explains why my portfolio is Enviroment & Open Space.

Hazel Barnes

Hazel Preston Barnes

Clerk to the Parish Council

If you need to know anything at all about the council and it's function, then Hazel is the person to contact

Hazel joined Streatley Council as Clerk in September 2018.

Hazel has lived in Streatley for over 20 years, which means she only has about another 20 to go before she can be considered a local. She has been an IT manager, a program manager and helped start a successful green energy company. Handling the day to day running of Streatley Parish Council should hopefully be relatively straight forward.
