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.

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.
