Moira Brennan (Chair): 01225 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.
David Beard: 01225 336722
I moved to Bathampton from Bath in 1993, living permanently in the village since 2014 after retiring from BT as an international telecommunications consultant with responsibility for Africa, Middle East and Far East. Since 2014, I have worked as a teacher at the University of the West of England and commute regularly from Bathampton to north Bristol, using public transport.
Bathampton is a wonderful place to live and I appreciate the quality of life here, especially having experienced many years as an expatriate worker overseas. My interests are local public transport services and the environment; I am the BANES-Bathampton Flood Liaison Volunteer and an active supporter of the Canal and Rivers Trust.
Liz Daly (Clerk)
During my gap year at the UWE Bristol, I worked for BANES as their marketing officer and lived within central Bath. I loved the city so much that on completion of my Marketing degree in 2002, I decided to return. My husband Dan and I have always loved Bathampton and after living In various places across Bath, we moved to the area in 2015.
We have two wonderfully energetic boys. Our eldest attends Bathampton Primary school and I look after our youngest full time, following a break in my 14 year Marketing career. Being an active family, we love to spend our time walking & cycling down the canal, visiting the local park and exploring the nearby countryside. During my spare time, I love to exercise. I also look after the mini club playgroup which is held at St Nicholas church.
George Ardrey: 01225 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: 01225 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: 01225 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 but retired in 2013. I have always volunteered – starting with the local playgroup and primary school, then the Gardeners Association. I have been a member of the Parish Council since 2003; I am Vice-Chair and I lead the team of councillors and advisors who look at planning applications and issues. I am also a governor at Bathampton Primary school.
Tony Purpuri: 01225 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.
I graduated in Engineering from the University of Bath and, after quite a few years in Italy then Australia, I returned in 2015 with my family, moving to Bathampton in 2019. I continue to work in Engineering for a large local employer in Gloucestershire.
Having been mountaineering in many high places in my younger years, but with joints creaking a bit more these days, I’m delighted to have settled into the welcoming village and hills of Bathampton. Since moving here, I’ve also resumed an old interest and joined Bath Archers, just a stroll away.
