Karen Jones attended her first Hambledon Parish Council meeting last night (June 26th), having been co-opted on to replace Sarah Stuckey.
Karen lives with her husband, a teacher, and family in Malthouse Lane. She has a career background in finance. She studied at the University of Surrey and obtained a degree in linguistic and international studies and a postgraduate diploma in technical translation (German).
She started her professional life as a graduate trainee with the NatWest Bank and has subsequently worked for British Airways, Prudential Assurance and Surrey University. She is now a part-time accounts assistant for a Witley building contractors.
She agreed to be co-opted to the parish council following the decision by Sarah Stuckey to stand down. Karen said she has enjoyed living in Hambledon and was looking forward to working on the council. She will assume several portfolios, including liaising with the village community shop, the parish magazine and community police team.
Mike Whittall has announced that he is standing down as he and his family are moving from the village. The parish council will begin the procedure to fill this vacancy once his resignation has been formally tendered.
The parish council has the authority to co-opt a new member if a vacancy arises mid-term and there is only one candidate, provided that 10 or more people do not request an election.
Contact details for all seven parish councillors and the clerk can be found on the Parish Council page of this website, under the heading Clubs and Organisations.
