Trudie became a Town Councillor in January 2022. Her career has always been in finance and now with more time on her hands, she wants to give something back to the community. She has served on our Halls and Finance committee over the past year. She has worked closely with the Christmas Fayre Committee and more recently the Music Festival to help raise money for local charities.

Cllr Alex Poppleton

Alex has lived in Woburn Sands for 22 years and has a background in change management and community engagement.

In the past Alex has been involved in the Community of Woburn Sands group, and in 2020 ran a successful campaign to stop the Ox-Cam expressway from bulldozing through our community!

Alex is passionate about protecting our ecosystems and our living environment and wants to ensure future planning developments are aligned with what local people actually want. She feels that it is important that the voice of the community is engaged and listened to!

Cllr Gwyn Jones

I have spent most of my career in Local Government and have experience of both rural and urban administrations. As a member of Woburn Sands Town Council I feel that I can make a positive contribution to the life of the town by contributing to our community and improving our environs.

 

Cllr Keith Temple

"I have lived in Woburn Sands for 28 years. For 10 years I was a Town Councillor and Mayor during 2018/19. Due to my mother suffering dementia I became a carer and resigned in 2019. I am now free to rejoin Woburn Sands Town Council.

My main interests are environment, policing and communications. Passionate about Woburn Sands, I am also a volunteer for many local organisations."
