Dai RobertsI was born and brought up in rural Wales. After leaving university where I studied Engineering, I moved to the south east and started my career in computing.
Having lived in Bracknell since 1997 I’ve come to appreciate the varied quality of life our town has to offer.
I am married with two children, both of whom are schooled locally. I live and work in Bullbrook and enjoy socialising in our new vibrant town centre.
I would list my strengths as a good listener, I have lots of energy and I love a new task.
I believe I have a wealth of experience to give to the Town Council. I am very much a ‘people person’ and I will not shrink from a challenge.
I feel I have a great insight into the problems and difficulties encountered in the day to day lives of the people of Bullbrook and I feel part of the wider Bracknell community, with connections in many groups within the area.
I believe I have the background and experience to be your Town Councillor and will do all I can to improve upon the great work our Town council already does.

Alvin FinchI enjoy the use of the open spaces provided by the Town and Borough councils. Having a pair of dogs has also helped myself and my wife meet a lot of people while exercising them. I am pleased that the Town Council introduced Environment Wardens. The wardens keep control of litter and dogs among other functions. I am keen to ensure that there is “joined up” thinking between the Town and Borough councils on environmental and other concerns. Our green spaces can do much to keep us all healthy.
I have lived in Bracknell for over 40 years. Amongst other interests I am a regular supporter of Bracknell Rugby Club.
As Town Mayor in 2013/14 I was amazed at the contributions to Bracknell in Bloom from residents of all ages. It was good to see how much effort went into the competition. During my year as Mayor It was also a pleasure and a privilege to meet people from all parts of the community/voluntary sector who put so much effort, and enthusiasm into keeping our town vibrant.
I have served on different committees of the Town Council and I am presently the Chairman of Planning. I work for myself, providing individuals with computer support.
