Buckingham Liberal Democrats

Introducing your three candidates for the Great Brickhill Ward

Liberal Democrat candidates standing in the Great Brickhill ward for the Buckinghamshire Unitary Council election on May 6, 2021.

The Great Brickhill Ward includes the villages of Drayton Parslow, Dunton, Great Brickhill, Hoggeston, Hogshaw, Mursley, Newton Longville, North Marston, Oving, Pitchcott, Quainton, Soulbury, Stewkley, Stoke Hammond and Swanbourne.

Andrew, Malcolm and Nicolette all live in the ward and understand the needs of our villages and communities. They are not professional politicians. Their priority is to help friends and neighbours to recover from the pandemic as a more caring community, working together for the benefit of all.

The Lib Dems are the only alternative to the Conservatives in our area. Labour and the Green traditionally have no ground to win here.

Great Brickhill Candidates 2021

Andrew Jones is a chartered accountant and prior to retirement worked in London in financial services regulation. He has lived in North Buckinghamshire for over 40 years, of which 30 years in Mursley, where he is a Parish Councillor. He is also a School Governor at a local Secondary School. Gardening, walking and other outdoor pursuits take up much of his leisure time. He is passionate about improving education for all Buckinghamshire children, cutting wasteful Council expenditure and protecting the environment of the County. He passionately believes that residents should have the opportunity to elect Councillors who live in the Ward at the heart of their community.

Nicolette moved from the Netherlands to the UK in 2002 to work for a software company, then based in Stokenchurch. She has lived in Buckinghamshire ever since, she met her British husband in Haddenham and they now live in Quainton with two teenage children, two cats and a dog. She has a backgroung in Social Work, IT and ran her own beauty business from home for the past 9 years. Sadly due to Covid lockdowns she's had to close the doors on her business. She joined the Liberal Democrats party in 2016 to give a voice to minority groups, such as EU citizens in the UK, neuro-diverse people, children with Special Educational Needs, gender choice and gender equality and those who have been excluded, one way or another, by government regulations, such as independent contractors, freelancers and small business owners during the Covid pandemic. She has a passion for education, the environment and creating a fair society for all.

Malcolm Newing has lived in the Aylesbury Vale for 30 years, 24 of them in Stoke Hammond where he is a Parish Councillor. He chaired the successful Stop Dorcas Lane Turbine Action Group which brought together residents across the North Bucks Villages. The same approach would be beneficial in the face of common threats like housing over-provision, road quality and traffic speed through the villages. He has managed major issues and large budgets as a Customer Service Director in BT that will help me contribute whilst making a difference to people's lives. He passionately believes that listening, caring and working together will deliver a better, stronger kinder society.

Bletchley Landfill - Public Meeting - Tuesday 4th May 5 to 7 pm

The Newton Longville Parish Council webpage about the appeal and public meeting is now live on their website, www.newton-longville.com. The page includes the most recent map and aerial picture they have had from FCC. The public meeting is on Tuesday 4th May from 5 to 7 pm - whilst not designed as a drop-in, there is no fundamental reason someone could not join at any time. Newton Longville Parish Council will be having a formal parish council meeting at 7 pm (or whenever the public meeting finishes if later) to make a decision on what stance NLPC is going to take on the appeals. If you are a member or supporter in the local area and you are affected by this development, we would suggest you attend the Public Meeting.
