Alex Adam

(Farncombe and Catteshall ward, Godalmiong Town Council)

I am standing for Town Councillor because I love where I live and want to ensure the views of the community are properly represented in local decision making. I believe that we need a change and that we deserve better than what we have now.

I have previously worked in central government but now work for a small conservation charity. I live with my family in central Farncombe, have two boys in the local schools and am an active member of the local community

If elected I would work hard to represent the views of Farncombe and Catteshall residents on the Town Council and make Farncombe an even better place to live.     

Christine Craig Baker

(Milford ward, Waverley borough council)

Former Liberal Democrat councillor on Waverley Borough Council, I chaired the Central Planning Sub-Committee.   Previously on Witley Parish Council I specialised in planning and affordable housing. 

A successful campaigner for an out-of-hours Mental Health Crisis line, I became Chair of the Mental Health Committee of the Surrey LINk (successor to the Community Health Council).

After the Conservatives’ costly planning mistakes over the Golf Club application, a new voice is needed for Milford.  If elected I will fight for the infrastructure  -  highways, schools, doctors  -   that will be necessary  and  will work hard to protect the village’s interests.

 

Adam Duce

(Central and Ockford ward, Godalming town council)

Adam has taught English at Godalming College for the last four years.  He is passionately committed to ensuring Godalming is a town that reflects young people's needs and want to enhance strong, positive relationships between the college, schools and the town itself. Equally, he sees investing in green infrastructure for Godalming is critical to protecting our health and the local environment from increasing air pollution and the growing volume of traffic on roads

Paul David Follows

(Central and Ockford ward, Waverley borough and Godalming town council)

Paul has lived in Surrey since 1993, including studying at the University of Surrey and he now works locally. He was elected as a Liberal Democrat councillor for Central and Ockford in 2017. Since then his major campaigns have been working with staff and parents to help save Green Oak School from closing, as part of the Liberal Democrat commitment to protecting education, and opposing major housing developments without the right infrastructure. Paul’s focus for the new council will be on making sure that councillors are active in their communities and really listening to residents’ concerns.

Joan Christine Heagin

(Holloway ward, Waverley borough and Godalming town council)

Joan has lived in Surrey for 40 years; with the last 15 years in Busbridge. Quite a contrast to growing up on a Northumberland hill farm, where she attended local grammar school before gaining a degree in economics at Manchester.

Joan took early retirement from a successful insurance career in the City in order to give something back. This has led to a variety of voluntary roles; from an orphanage in Nepal to dog walking for elderly local residents.  She is now a regular volunteer at the Citizens Advice Bureau and she is also on the committee of Busbridge Village Hall.  Joan will be focusing her campaign issues on local traffic, more affordable housing and a better local environment.

Heather Hullah

(Binscombe ward, Godalming town council)

Heather has lived in Binscombe for 17 years and been involved in the community as Governor of a local primary school and Chairman of Greening Godalming.   In the context of climate change and to preserve the environment for our futures she is  committed to improving air quality in Godalming and also better recycling of plastics and other items.

She wants to being fresh eyes and new perspectives on how to improve Council services for Farncombe and in particular Binscombe residents and looks forward to hearing about the ideas of residents, of all ages.

Paul Sidney Rivers

(Binscombe ward, Waverley borough and Godalming town council)

Paul Rivers was elected to Godalming Town Council in 2003 and served eight years, including one as Mayor.  Paul also served four years, having been elected to Waverley Borough Council in 2003 for one term. Paul lives in Farncombe.

Penny Rivers

(Farncombe and Catteshall ward, Waverley borough and Godalming town council)

 

Penny Rivers was first elected to Godalming Town Council for Farncombe and Catteshall Ward in 1995 and served 16 years, twice as Town Mayor. Penny lives in Farncombe and is currently Liberal Democrat County Councillor for Godalming North. Her major focus has been on the ’20 is plenty’ road speed campaign.

Anne-Marie Margaret Rosoman

(Central and Ockford ward, Waverley borough and Godalming town council)

Anne-Marie has lived and worked in Waverley Borough for most of her life. She has two grown-up sons as well as a stepson and stepdaughter so is used to juggling family life.

She retired last year having worked as a lawyer

Michael Steel
