Message from the new Buckinghamshire Ward Councillors

Quainton

11

May 2021
new-BC-councillors

We are delighted to announce that we have been elected as unitary councillors for the Great Brickhill Ward, of which Quainton Parish is a part.

As we made clear during our campaigning, we are keen to actively support your residents and the Parish Council.

The Great Brickhill ward covers a wide area, so we believe the best way of serving you is for one of us to act as the primary contact for most day-to-day matters. Iain Macpherson, who has been active within the village during the last twelve months, will act in this capacity for Quainton.

We should emphasise that all three of us are accessible, as and when required on major issues, providing the weight of the full team. We will also engage our Member of Parliament when required.

We hope that you will find this a useful arrangement and we look forward to serving you over the next four years.

Yours sincerely,

PhilGomm
