Chris TurrellI’ve been on Bracknell Town Council since 2000, and have been Leader of the Council since 2004. I also chair the Strategy & Finance and Staffing committees.
I am keen to see the Town Council keep up its high standards of maintenance for the parks, play areas and other facilities in its care. Recently, these have included new water supply to Glenwood allotments and refurbishment work on Oareborough play area.
I want the Town Council to continue to offer residents in Harmans Water the best possible service and value for money, and to maintain its grant support for local groups.
I work locally for a major hotel group, and have lived in Bracknell since 1993.
I am also Executive Member for Planning and Transport on Bracknell Forest Council.
With my fellow councillors, we hold regular monthly surgeries and produce regular In Touch newsletters.

Ian KirkeI believe that I can continue to make a positive difference to the continued wellbeing of Bullbrook. It has a host of treasured public spaces that make it a brilliant place to live in, an observation I can vouch for since becoming a Bullbrook resident in 2004. However, its continued security and safety requires an active layer of local government. The position of Town Councillor is vital to maintaining this position and I will be able to continue to fully support this process. In my previous life in the Police, initially as Priestwood beat constable then latterly as a senior officer I was accustomed to working alongside residents and have experience of partnership working. A widower and proud Dad of two, my daughter is an events executive in Australia and my son is a Barrister, my work life balance, as Managing Director of a leading risk consultancy, will allow me to invest the appropriate time to fulfil the role. A Law graduate with a Master’s in criminology I have a keen interest in community safety, restorative justice, and mediation. I remain loyal to my roots as an avid Notts County fan.

Roger MeakesI am honoured to be returned as town councillor for another term. I believe I had a productive 4 years as a councillor for Great Hollands South and wish to continue for the next 4 years. I have met a lot of people from all walks of life, some of which I have been able to help or assist, most, I have been there for them in the form of an advisory.
Bracknell has been my home for the major part of my life and I have seen how it has flourished under the stewardship of the Conservatives, which is still ongoing. I am proud to be part of a team that cares for its residents and the locality in which they live. I hope the next four years will be as exciting as the last four.

Gill BirchI have been proud to represent Birch Hill since 2000. Birch Hill has its own spirit which is vibrant and caring
We are fortunate to have South Hill Park. My grandson Leo (7), loves the park and the lakes. Hedgehog Park is his favourite play area and I have encouraged and supported the continued improvements.
The play area at Barry Square is soon to be taken over by the Town Council from BFC and I will press for improvements.
I have worked to improve car parking at South Hill Park for main events. I secured funding for signs directing cars to the parking at Leppington. I also worked with South Hill Park to get the markings on the car park repainted.
Now retired from teaching, I was a governor of Birch Hill School and I am still a governor of The Pines School, so I stay in touch with parents and children.
I was delighted to organise the art and poetry competitions to commemorate the centenary of the end of WW1. Over 300 poems were entered for the competition and the highlight was a recording of the winning 14 children’s poems being played at North Lake Field.
All the schools had a recording given to them. The art exhibition at SHP had 84 entries which were outstanding and a delight to view and I was thrilled that the overall winner for the Junior schools was from The Pines.
I pledge to work hard to keep Birch Hill a great place to live, work and play.
