Gavin Walker was co-opted to the Parish Council in December 2018 and now represents Manor Ward. Together with our other new councillors, Leo Lanzoni (Manor) and Chandler Wilson (Camelot), we’d like to welcome Gavin on board. (We featured Leo in the January edition and will introduce Chandler in March).
“I was born in Ruddington and have lived in the village for most of my adult life. For the past 12 years I’ve been a director of an Internet Marketing company, which has its offices in the village centre,” says Gavin.
“I’ve been a trustee of the Ruddington Local History Society and the Village Museum for over 25 years. I’m also a long-standing member of the Ruddington Footpath Preservation Group and currently lead the organisation.”
Describing his local issues of interest, Gavin adds: “Through my work with the Ruddington Village Plan, I’ve become increasingly concerned with health care issues in the village, particularly around provision for residents with mental health issues or disabilities.
“I also have a keen interest in Ruddington’s history and heritage. Without wanting to preserve the village in aspic, I’ll endeavour to ensure that any development is sympathetic to our heritage assets and enhances the local environment.”
You can contact Gavin through the Parish Council Office.
