Kingsley Village
in the heart of Cheshire

Councillor Claire Jones – Councillor Profile

Claire Jones

I moved to the village with my husband in 2007 and our little girl, Sophie, was born in 2010. Working full time as a chartered transport planner, I didn't have too much time to get involved in village life. However, whilst on maternity leave in 2010/11, a parish plan leaflet arrived through the door and I decided to help with the process. Doing the plan gave me a real insight into the needs and aspirations of the village and I loved working with the community so much that I decided to join the parish council. It also inspired me to change career and I'm now a community development officer working across Cheshire, advising volunteers about planning, fundraising and managing buildings in their local communities. As they say, one thing leads to another, and as well as chairman of the parish council, I'm now also secretary at the Village Institute.

Kingsley is a beautiful place to live and I want to keep it that way - and even make it a little better! It is apparent that there is a real sense of community spirit in the village and I can't emphasise enough the benefits of getting more actively involved in village life and community activities.

As one of the village enhancement representatives, I'm currently leading on the bid for funding to improve the playing field. It was great to hear through our recent survey that many of you support the proposals to install a path and outdoor gym on the field and I truly hope that we can deliver these facilities for everyone early in 2016. I'm also involved with bringing Christmas to Kingsley and we hope you'll agree that the festive decorations and celebrations are improving each year. Let me know if you have any more ideas.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch by phone or e-mail if you have any issues that you'd like to discuss. You're also welcome to come along to one of our meetings - held at the Community Centre on the third Tuesday of every month (apart from August).
