Jeremy joined the Parish Council in 2014, and was elected chairman in 2016. His portfolio is the Parish Plan and he also liaises with St Mary's Church on behalf of the Parish Council. He attends the quarterly Neighbourhood Action Group (NAG) meetings.
He and his wife Kathryn moved to Streatley in 2010 and live in Rectory Road. During his career Jeremy worked in human resources and office management in UK and Europe; since retirement in 2011 he has become involved with local activities including the Goring Gap News and driving local residents to medical appointments.

Nick's principal portfolios are ICT and Communications, and Planning. He represents the Parish Council on the Heart of Streatley Charitable Trust and Friends of Streatley Rec. He is the lead councillor for planning applications in Rectory Road and Wantage Road.
Nick has lived in the village for 20 years and worked locally for most of them. Having felt like the right time to take a more active part in what goes on in the village, he joined the Parish Council in 2014. 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 in London, but decided pretty quickly that, if he couldn't build steam trains, then computers were more his thing.
He has been a volunteer for the Thames Rescue service for over 15 years, regularly keeping pleasure boats out of the way of the G&S regatta and similar events in the local area.
Michael's principal portfolio is Environment and Open Spaces. He represents the Parish Council on the Heart of Streatley Charitable Trust and Friends of Streatley Rec. He is the lead Councillor for planning applications in Wallingford Road and Reading Road.
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.

Joanne's principal portfolio is Local Listing and Assets of Community Value. She represents the Parish Council as a trustee of the Heart of Streatley Charitable Trust. She is the lead Councillor for planning applications in Stichens Green and Southridge.
Jo, her partner and 2 daughters moved to Streatley in 2019. Originally from Warwickshire, Jo has spent her career in the IT industry and currently works for Sage as a Programme Manager. As part of her role she is also heavily involved in Sage Foundation which supports many local charities in West Berkshire and beyond.
Previously Vice Chair on the governing body of a Warwickshire primary school, she was really keen to get involved in the local Streatley community, hence joining 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.
