The parish council is delighted to announce the appointment of Mr Brian Brooks to the council.
Brian says “I have always lived and worked in the local area, having spent my childhood in Tring, attending Tring school. After leaving home I moved several times in the local area always staying close to the Structural engineering practice I was employed by in Tring. Finally I settled in Pitstone eight years ago with my wife Tara and our three children Jake, Lauren and Ben. All my children have attended Brookmead School and the eldest two are now at Tring school.
I am a member of the Institute of Structural Engineers and Director/owner of a medium size Structural Engineering practice based in Bourne End near Hemel Hempstead.
As a family we have embraced the village life and have volunteered for Pitstone clubs and associations where possible. I am currently a committee member for the Pitstone Allotment association and look after the PAA website. I have also assisted the Parish Council where possible with technical advice for the new children’s park procurement. My wife Tara is a regular volunteer at the Pitstone Youth Club. My eldest son Jake is a helper each week with the Pitstone Beavers.
I will be hoping to take the views of the community, their needs and aspirations and help to turn them into a reality during the appropriate forum at the Parish Council meetings.
I am looking forward to helping the other Parish Councillors to continue to make a difference and improve the environment and amenities in Pitstone, making it a place for all to continue to enjoy and live in. “
Mr Brooks fills the vacancy created by the resignation of councillor Monaghan.
