Cathy has lived in Cranleigh for nearly 58 years, attended both Park Mead and Glebelands Schools and later went on to study at Guildford Technical College. She qualified as a State Registered Nurse in 1987 at the St Luke’s and Royal Surrey County Hospitals and practised as a nurse for 10 years in a variety of fields within the nursing area.  She is married to David and they have two children together, both boys, who also attended Park Mead and Glebelands.  Cathy was an active member of the PTA while her sons were at Park Mead.

For the past 23 years she has been a member of the Guildford ME/CFS Support Group as she suffers from the illness herself and likes to offer help and a listening ear to others in the group and is just starting to write articles for their quarterly newsletter.

She is also an active member of the Cranleigh community including playing her part as a Street Champion.

Her interests are health and welfare, supporting our local youth and vulnerable residents, environmental projects and representing the community in general. She supports the use of the Cranleigh Village Hospital in offering all of the fantastic services it does to the community and would, in time, like to see an Acute/Urgent Treatment Centre in the village.

My family and I moved to Cranleigh in the Summer of 2019. Now we have settled in, I am looking for a way where I can add value to the village and improve the lives of the residents and I believe I would be able to do that as an active member of the Parish Council.

I have over 20 years of corporate experience working in Financial Services Compliance as a management consultant or in house and I believe this will offer valuable transferable skills to the council.

As a parent to three children who (when not being home schooled) attend local schools and as a member and coach at Cranleigh Cricket Club I am aware of some of the local issues and have an active interest in improving village life.

Councillor

Cranleigh North Ward

I've lived in and around Cranleigh for over 52 years, growing up and attending schools in Cranleigh East. At school, I was a keen football player for Glebelands, Ewhurst boys club and played for various other clubs around the village until I was 30. I then took up competing in nationally organised half marathons and training in the gym and along the Downslink, running with my dog Taz. I have owned and run businesses in Cranleigh and participated in local charitable events since the age of 10. My first being a 20 mile sponsored walk to help fund the building of Cranleigh Leisure centre. Having learned of the current planned growth for Cranleigh and surrounding villages and having been around to witness the effects of the growth of Cranleigh during the 60's and 70's, I have been working hard with local Groups over the last 5 years to persuade planning decision makers of the necessity of paying attention to flood risks and the damage causes to the local environment, business and quality of life in general when the associated infrastructure for house building is not properly included in the development plans. As a Councillor I will continue working to protect Cranleigh's local environment and village feel.

Register of interests

Marc has lived in Cranleigh for 4 years, along with his wife Fiona. They purchased an old run-down cottage a mile from the centre and have spent the last 3 years sympathetically renovating the property.

Marc works for BT Education and spends a large amount of his time travelling around the UK to work with schools and colleges. He delivers key infrastructure services, safeguarding, IT and hardware - a job he is very proud to be involved with.

Marc works closely with prison services in the Milton Keynes area where 19 prisons are linked into a college. This allows education to be delivered to inmates, enabling them to learn and gain skills to deploy into their lives and future society.

Outside of work, interests include rugby (played for Blackheath RFC at 17 years old) and engineering, a passion which derived from his great grandfather’s lifetime involvement in motor racing and aeronautical engineering. Marc enjoys classic sports cars and anything which has been beautifully designed and made.

Marc is keen to work in the community as a newly elected councillor to make a difference and champion important parish causes with openness, approachability and honesty. His personal ‘hot topics’ are housing and infrastructure impact, recycling, fly tipping and retail challenges in the high street.
