Councillor Ellen Crumly, Town Mayor of Thatcham 2017-2018
Councillor Ellen Mary Crumly, Town Mayor of Thatcham 2017-18
My husband, Richard, and I live in north Thatcham with our 7 year old Westie, Winston. We are both retired now but worked in central Thatcham for over 30 years, Richard as a Solicitor and me as a Legal Executive. Working in the hub of the town we came to know a lot about the people of Thatcham and the problems that the town faced. We found that the residents of Thatcham have a sense of ‘belonging’ to our town and indeed many long term residents still refer to it as ‘The Village’.
Our two children are grown up and have fled the nest. We have one beautiful granddaughter, Annabelle, who has recently turned one.
It was an honour to have been elected as Mayor last year and it is amazing to have been re-elected for another term. We enjoyed last year very much, meeting so many people and learning much about the town’s challenges and what it has to offer everyone. There is indeed something for everyone, from baby music and dance to afternoon tea dances for the slightly older generation!
I have chosen as my charities for this year, The Rosemary Appeal which is raising money for a new Renal Dialysis and Treatment Centre at the West Berkshire Community Hospital, and Young People and Children First which helps Foster Care Leavers as they move on to independent living. I am looking for new ideas to raise money so please let me know if you have any. I will also be tackling the continuing litter problem and hope to make some progress with this.
I look forward to another year and hope to meet as many residents as possible. I can be contacted via the Town Council Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you would like to donate to the Mayor’s Fund please send a cheque payable to ‘Thatcham Town Mayor’s Charitable Fund’ to Thatcham Town Council, Brownsfield Road, Thatcham RG18 3HF.
If you would like to invite the Mayor or Deputy Mayor to your event then please complete this form or email email@example.com or post to Thatcham Town Council, Brownsfield Road, Thatcham, Berkshire, RG18 3HF.
Invitations will be dealt with on a first come basis and whilst the Mayor will strive to accommodate where possible please check with Thatcham Town Council before making any arrangements dependent on the Mayor’s attendance.

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.

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!
