Moira Brennan (Chair): 313503
I came to the University of Bath in the 80s and lived in many parts of Bath, including a few years in Bathampton, before heading off around the world to follow my career as a Finance Director.
When my husband Paul and I got a chance to come back to the West in 2005, we found that Bathampton offered the perfect balance of having wonderful countryside on our doorstep along with all the options of living within a mile of Bath. We love to walk and cycle and Bathampton offers so many beautiful routes right from our front door. I also work as a non-executive director of the RUH.
Clerk – Ali Taylor: 466137
I first moved to Batheaston in 1978 before spending nearly 40 years in Somerset. Having recently moved back to Bath I am pleased to be able to get to know Bathampton better through working with the residents and Parish Council.
Following a career in higher education and the not-for profit sector, and a life lived in small remote villages, I am enjoying not being tied to a large garden and I am learning to live small and urban.
Stuart Andrews: 425637
My wife, Rachel, and I lived in Bristol for twelve years in the 80s and 90s, but after ten years away in Sussex, and most recently four years in the French Alps, we saw the light and returned to live in Bathampton. I have had a full career teaching French and recently retired. We have three grown-up children all of whom are teachers! I enjoy all sports, notably skiing, golf, cycling, real tennis and table tennis.
George Ardrey: 424270
My wife Pat and I came to Bathampton in 2003, having led somewhat nomadic lives originating in London. I have a military and engineering background and, more recently, have taught mathematics at secondary school. We have grandchildren in Bath, Bristol and New York, all of whom enjoy Bathampton and its amenities.
I continue to be interested in education through tutoring, examining and invigilating locally, and I currently keep fit through swimming at the public pool and general gardening.
Jan Helps: 336656
I have lived in Bathampton for about 20 years. Having recently joined the parish council, I have responsibilities for the village amenities including the allotments and playground. Although not an allotment owner myself, I am a member of Dry Arch Growers and an advocate of sustainable, local food production whenever possible.
I also produce the parish council newsletter and what’s on pages so I am the person to contact if you want to include anything in the village news section.
Lin King: 460998
My husband Brent and I moved to Bathampton in 1981, little knowing what a good decision it would be. We have one son, now grown up and living in London.
I am working as a Project Manager for a software company. I have always volunteered – starting with the local playgroup and primary school, then the Gardeners Association. I am now a governor at the school as well as a member of Parish Council since 2003.
David Mayo: 466875
I have lived in Bath since I arrived as a student in 1999 and I moved to Bathampton in 2008 with my then fiancée, Jennie, and I joined the Parish Council in 2010 because I wanted to give something back to my local community.
I was part of the organisational team for the Kennett & Avon celebrations in July 2010 and I am responsible for maintaining the numerous footpaths that crisscross our community. Away from the council and work, I can often be found running or cycling along the tow path, I also DJ in several local night clubs.
Tony Purpuri: 335978
I moved to Bathampton in 2017 with my wife, Emily, and 2 little girls, who attend the local primary and pre-school. I’ve lived in the Bath area since 2010 and loved the city as soon as I moved. Prior to that I lived in Bristol for many year including my student years having studied Aeronautical Engineering at Bristol University.
I joined the parish council in 2019 and look forward to supporting the community. Personally, I am particularly interested in astronomy and astrophotography, however time constraints means I’ve not been as involved as I’d like to. I’m also a big rugby fan and feel very fortunate to live close to a team of great pedigree.
