Amy-Jane Brooks

I am proud to have been co-opted onto the Town Council. I have lived in Dereham for almost 30 years. After a period of 5 years in Reading whilst I was at university, I moved back to Dereham in 2011 and I currently live in Toftwood. I love living in Dereham and want to get the best for all residents, not just for residents in certain areas of the town.

 

I currently work in the town centre, however in September 2019 I will be commencing teacher training. I am very much aware of the struggles many people face on a day-to-day basis and I try to get involved in activities to raise awareness of this. Housing issues and homelessness issues are key areas of concern. I am currently in the process of setting up a branch of a Tenants Union for Dereham, Norwich and the surrounding areas. I also raise money for a housing charity by taking part in the Great North Run.

 

In my spare time I enjoy going for walks and weekends away with my husband, as well as going to concerts and spending time with my friends and family.

Christopher Bunting

I am honoured and proud to have been elected as a member of Dereham Town Council and to represent Toftwood, where I have lived for the past few years with my partner and young family. I work locally in the Automative Industry. 

Having spent the majority of my childhood and adult life in Norfolk, I understand the concerns and issues that residents face every day. I have been involved with Politics for over 20 years and was previously a Borough Councillor in King's Lynn in 2003. During that time I held numerous positions, including School Governor, Shadow portfolio holder for Culture and Youth Ambassador. In addition, I held a seat on the Development Control Board and the Citizens Advice Bureau management committee.

My overriding priority is to unite our Town. Residents, schools, authorities and businesses working together towards an area we can all be proud of. I will represent every person within Dereham equally, fairly and compassionately, working towards a common goal that benefits everybody within the community.

Hugh King

I moved from Canterbury in Kent to Dereham in 1980. I am married and have four children, five grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. I served in HM Forces for 9 years; on my termination I joined British Rail at Canterbury and moved to Dereham, where I spent most of my time as a Manager for Anglia Railways until retirement 24 years later.

On retirement I became a member of the former Board of Visitors at HMP Wayland, and went on to become Vice-Chairman. I have been a volunteer on Mid-Norfolk Railways as a Director, where I spent five years as Standards and Compliance Director. At present I am the Public Relations Officer for Norfolk Military Vehicles Group (my hobby) and am also a member of the Royal British Legion Dereham branch, for which I served as Secretary and Vice-Chairman. I had to stand down to take on the position as the County Chairman for Norfolk RBL, which I am now undertaking. I am now looking forward to another new challenge as a Councillor for Dereham.

My other interests are in both the youth and elderly sides in Dereham.
