Cllr. 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.
