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.
Dr Don Smith (Clerk): 744472
I moved to Bathampton in 1971 from Surrey. I became involved with the Gardeners Association and was their Treasurer for many years. I gave up the post on moving to Bath in 1986. I have maintained my ties with Bathampton ever since and have helped out in the Gardeners’ trading hut and at the Annual Flower Show. In 1996 I became Clerk to Bathampton Parish Council.
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.
Jacqueline Bird: 312621
My partner and I, with our two teenage sons, moved to Bathampton in July 2015. I am originally Armenian but have lived in the UK since 1984. I qualified as a lawyer in 2009 and currently work in Property Law for a small firm in Bradford on Avon. My family and I love living in Bathampton, it offers proximity to the city centre whilst being very near to the canal and countryside.
I wanted to become part of the Parish Council because I wanted to support my community and become involved in local affairs. I am a novice parish councillor but hope that I will be able to, in time, contribute more to my community and play an active role within the parish.
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.
Liam McMurray: 312412
Having moved to Bath in 1996 to study Design at university, I’ve lived in Bathampton since 2011 with my wife and young daughter and we love the area. My responsibilities for the Parish Council include maintaining this website, and keeping our profiles on Facebook and Twitter up to date with local news and event information. I’m also involved with the Bathampton Playground Group – looking to improve facilities for the children of our community (and their parents/guardians!).
