Colin Evers (Chair)

Hartlands Hill
Nr Minsterworth
Glos GL2 8JY
Tel: 01452 750594

Having lived in Westbury-on-Severn Parish for a quarter of a century, Colin Evers has come to know and care a great deal for both it and its inhabitants. By profession a Member of the Royal Society of Chemistry and the Society of Chemistry in Industry, after working for more than thirty years in the electricity supply industry, and for the next decade as a consultant involved in a range of environmental and safety related studies, officially he is now retired, although his diary remains filled with his voluntary activity commitments.

Independent of any political allegiance, he is a firm believer in human equality. Now in his second term on the Parish Council, he also represents the Forest of Dean on the Executive Committee of the Gloucestershire Association of Parish and Town Councils, and is the Westbury PC member on the Lydney Area Forum. External to local government affairs, he is an HMG appointed Trustee Under Seal for Walmore Common, and, partly because of his commitment to life long learning promotion and practice, he has been on the Governing Body of Walmore Hill Primary School for sixteen years, twelve of them as its Chairperson. A belief in the need for sustainability is reflected in his membership of several charities including the Campaign to Protect Rural England, the National Trust, the Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust, and the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds. In addition, he is currently Hon. Secretary to Friends of Forest, an organisation within the Forest of Dean that is lobbying for its long overdue designation as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. After that for his wife and family, probably his next greatest love is classical music, with ornithology and sailing close joint third, when he gets the time.

Di Landon

Tel: 01452 760531

I moved to Westbury-on-Severn with a young family in 1977. Having come from London, we appreciated the strong community that we had joined, and over the past 30 years we have been involved to a varying extent with nearly every organisation in the parish - although I haven't tried Golden Age and Age Concern! Having grandchildren now growing up in the village, I still have a particular interest in facilities for the young and am Chairman of the Westbury-on-Severn Youth Project. I also assit my husband, Andrew, with the production of the WoSP (a local newsletter), and have been a member of Westbury Players since it began.
I work part-time with the Homeless Healthcare Team in Gloucester and I am interested in local history and gardening.
