Parish Councillors

Cllr Chris Price – Chairman

I grew up in Cirencester, leaving to go to university in Coventry, where I met my wife, Ann. My career has been in the NHS and university sectors, more recently as an independent consultant in the healthcare sector. Ann and I came to live in Daglingworth in 2002, drawn back by the beauty, peace and quiet of the Cotswold countryside.

I was elected as a councillor in May 2011, and as Chairman by my fellow councillors at my first meeting. Prior to that I had contributed to the Village Plan, as well as supporting Ann during her period as Village Hall Manager.

I believe strongly in maintaining the nature of the countryside and welcome the opportunity to serve the parishioners of Daglingworth.

Cllr Geoff Elliott

I have lived in Daglingworth since 1999 with my wife Lesley and was elected to the Parish Council in May 2011. We have two daughters and five grandchildren. Prior to moving to the village, Cirencester was our home town for over 20 years. Before retirement, I worked as Divisional Director for a National Housing Association.

Since joining the Parish Council I have been trained, with three other villagers, to carry out 'Speedwatch'. I am also the coordinator for the monthly Rural Cinema held at the Village Hall.

Daglingworth is a very special place and my aim is to help keep it that way.

Cllr Graham White

I was co-opted onto Parish Council in August 2016, following retirement of previous Councillor who had served 47 years. I will not be competing with that term. I have lived here for the last 20 years but in 1970 I rented a flat in Chantry House, then called Daglingworth Towers, when an Estate Management student at the Agricultural College, now Royal Agricultural University. I was a member of the Village Hall Committee not long after arriving in the village. Now retired I am still a Chartered Surveyor with 40 years experience in planning, development and house-building with New Town Corporations, private companies and PLCs.

I believe a good parish councillor should promote and protect the interests of the residents, whilst having regard to the policies of the County and District Councils.

Cllr Roger Giles

Originally from Dinas Powis, I had a retail floristry business with outlets in Cardiff and Penarth, and other business interests. We moved to Daglingworth in 1985.
 
One of the last called for National Service in the RAF, I was posted to Riyan in Arabia ( after six months training as a wireless operator) and seconded to the Hydrami Bedouin Leigon for a year. Returning to the UK, I was stationed with the American Air Force at Mildenhall 3 Group Bomber Command - it was the time of the "cold war".
 
I retired from the Ambulance Service eleven years ago where I was a driver/assistant to the duty Doctor with the Emergency Doctor Service.
