Our Members

The Council comprises 12 Councillors with elections held every four years.

Bollington Town is divided into three Wards: East Ward, West Ward and Central Ward. Each has its own four Councillors. Ingersley Vale is accessible only from Bollington but most of it is actually in Rainow parish. Other premises on the east side of Bollington are also in Rainow parish.

In order to be transparent each Councillor must declare any pecuniary interests and a register is kept of these with the monitoring officer at Cheshire East Council.

My wife and I live in Kerridge, having moved here from Manchester to set down roots. As a keen cyclist and walker, Bollington is a perfect home for me. My business is based in Manchester and operates throughout the UK. Work/life balance has shifted to allow me to serve the people of Bollington, having been co-opted on to the Council. I am looking forward to helping this wonderful community in the challenges ahead. Please get in touch with any issues of concern.
