Cllr. Peter Richardson

Peter Richardson

I represent the Maesbury with Aston Ward of the parish and I have lived in Maesbury since 1997.  I re-joined the Council in May 2017 although I was a Parish Councillor for many years up until 2013 when I had some health issues.

I became a Councillor to give something back to the community where I live and to put forward the views and opinions of the people and community that I respresent in the Maesbury with Aston Ward.  I act as a point of contact for the Maesbury with Aston community where they can come and discuss local issues.

My ambitions for the Council include:

  • being a voice of the electors that the Council represents;
  • ensuring that planning policy is adhered to and to protect the communities that we represent;
  • that the Council can continue to develop the skills required for good Councillors and to achieve Quality Status in the future.

I work in ICT and Telecoms and Cyber Security and I am very intrested in emerging technologies.  I enjoy the countryside and I am a keen Clay Pidgeon Shooter.

Cllr. Anthony John Davies

I represent the Trefonen with Treflach Ward of the parish and I have lived in the parish for 43 years.

I became a councillor because I have been fortunate in acquiring skills during a long career, which I think could be useful in attempting to help the local community.  I enjoy living in my village of Trefonen and through a combination of good luck and hard work I have a good lifestyle.  I want to help others, particulary those who are less fortunate, to experience the same.

Parish Councils have been described as “sleeping giants” of communities and I believe this to be the case.  They have massive opportunities to improve lives and the environment and it is my ambition to contribute to these aspirations.

I am, and have been, active in the local community and have had various positions with many different organisations.  These include The Rotary Club of Oswestry; Oswestry Rugby Club; Offa Community Support, and  recently the P3 Environmental Group.
