About Tony

Thank you for electing me to be your Wiltshire Councillor for Warminster Broadway! I look forward to representing you over the course of the next four years...

My values

I have lived in Wiltshire for over 30 years and in Warminster for the past 20 years. I am a champion for integrating the serving military community with wider Wiltshire institutions. I value the local Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty but understand the need for local services to meet the needs of our aspirational younger citizens.

General background and experience

I work as a self-employed logistics consultant mainly in the humanitarian sector, currently as a Humanitarian Representative for Army exercises. Now gratefully elected to represent Warminster Broadway, I have been appointed to Wiltshire Council’s Staff Policy, Audit and Environment Select Committees. I am also appointed to the Warminster Area Board where I will champion the interests of Warminster.

My experience at work and in the community has given me wide experience in committee management and consensus building. I appreciate being part of a team delivering results.

Community work

  • Warminster Athenaeum Management Committee Fundraising Member since 2003. Trustee since 2014. 
  • Warminster Hospital Friends Management Committee since 2015.
  • Wiltshire Wildlife Trust volunteer at Smallbrook Nature Reserve and Sarsen Trail team organiser since 1999. 
  • Coordinating Warminster’s Heritage Open Day in 2017. 

Personal and family background

I am married with adult children and one grandchild. I enjoy country sports, racquet sports, bird watching and bridge.

Other information

I have lived in Victoria Road since 1997 and am familiar with Broadway issues. There is a need to ensure that planned development is undertaken sensitively with minimal disruption to existing residents. I will also campaign to ensure that developers and Wiltshire Council make strong service provision for schools, roads and flood mitigation.

I have a strong sense of duty and will represent Warminster Broadway residents in their very best interests.

Help and advice

I will always attend Area Board Meetings and will be available immediately before or after the meeting for personal meetings. The next Board meetings are:

  • 29th June 7pm Warminster Civic Centre
  • 7th September 7 pm Location TBC

I am also available for individual meetings, normally at Warminster Civic Centre, by appointment.
