Dominic BoeckMoving to Thatcham with my family in 1988 was a good decision for us. Both my children went to Francis Baily and Kennet Schools and were able to find jobs locally after graduation. My career was in telecoms and Thatcham gave us the services and space we needed.
I decided I wanted to give something back to the community and I was elected to the Town Council and West Berkshire Council in 2011 and again in 2015. I chair the Recreation and Amenities Committee at Thatcham Town Council and that gives me the chance to make a difference in the lives of local people.
Address: Flint House, The Weavers, Brimpton

Jason CollisI became a Councillor because I wanted to make Thatcham a better place and also to serve my community. To aid this I took a part time job so that I would have more time for Council and community work. My family have been hugely supportive of my involvement with the Council.
Thatcham has been and continues to be a wonderful place to bring up our family. We have loved the feel of a country town community and I hope that the Town Council can help to maintain that community feel for our town.
Cllr Jason Collis is also the Leader of Thatcham Town Council.

Ellen CrumlyMarried with two grown-up children and one granddaughter, I moved to Thatcham in 2015 but worked in Thatcham Broadway for over 30 years as a Legal Executive for my Solicitor husband (now both retired). I therefore gained knowledge of some of the issues and problems affecting the local people and becoming a Councillor has given me the opportunity to become involved in decision-making and problem-solving. Becoming Mayor (2016-17 & 2017-18) has enabled me to get out and about meeting many people and organisations. I really enjoy being part of the community and hope that in some small way I am able to channel information and ideas in both directions - from Council to the community and from the community back to the Council.
