Richard Simmons

I am a retired engineering manager and have lived in Whetstone for 27 years. I have been a member of the parish council for approximately 6 years. I joined because I wanted to be involved and serve the local community and feel that the parish council enables me to have an input in to local affairs.

My aim is for Whetstone to continue be a pleasant and peaceful village to live in and hope that my contribution through the parish council will have a benefit for all. I am also a member of one of the local churches which enabled me to keep in touch with local people’s needs and concerns.
