Jan CoverI moved to Thatcham in 1983 and straight away felt very at home. In 1994 I moved from Thatcham when my husband and I took over a public house the other side of Newbury. A few months after he died in 2008 I decided to move back to Thatcham. Best move I could have made, I love it here. It's friendly with good industrious hard working people. Plus it is still a town that thinks its a village, great!
I became involved with becoming a Town Councillor via the Conservatives, I was absolutely delighted to be voted by local people to represent them.
It is interesting, varied and, oh yes, time consuming!

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.

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.

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.

Steve Ardagh-WalterI'm one of the Members for West Thatcham on Thatcham Town Council. I sit on several committees, including those dealing with planning and highways, finance and the budget.
I'm also fortunate to represent West Thatcham on West Berkshire District Council. Additionally I'm the district 'cycling champion'. While being strictly a utility cyclist and not at all sporty, I'm greatly looking forward to forthcoming improved cycle lanes along the A4, starting with Newbury to Colthrop by mid 2018. I'm a member of the Henwick Worthy Management Committee and sit on the Thatcham Flood Forum.
I have lived in Thatcham for 25 years while working in the telecoms and IT industries.
Being married to a teacher, with 2 daughters who have passed through Kennet School, and having been a governor at Francis Baily Primary School for 10 years, I am particularly interested in education as well as transport.
I greatly enjoy the variety of issues which we deal with as a Council, and the opportunities it brings to help improve Thatcham and residents' lives.
