Eynsham Parish Council

Eynsham Parish Council logoHere are the names and contact details of your local representatives - click on any link in the right-hand sidebar.

The Council agreed on 12 June 2012 to adopt in full the West Oxfordshire Code of Conduct for members and co-opted members - more >>

The Parish Council is made up of 15 members, with four vacancies as of May 2015. Vacancies arising between elections are advertised on the village notice boards. If 10 electors of the parish ask for an election within 14 working days, the district council will arrange this and ask for candidates; otherwise the parish council may fill the vacancy by co-option. If there are more candidates than vacancies on co-option, the Parish Council will hold a ballot.

We also have details for district, county and national government.

Parish, district and county councillors and MPs are elected for a term of four years, Euro-MPs for five years. Elections are usually held on the first Thursday of May in the Village Hall. You may vote again in:

  • 2016 for West Oxfordshire District Council;
  • 2017 for Oxfordshire County Council;
  • 2018 for the District Council (councillors change in thirds) and for Euro-MPs.
  • 2019 for MPs, the District Council and Eynsham Parish Council.

  • Richard Andrews

    Vice-Chair of the Parish Council; Parish Councillor since August 2006 and a District Councillor for Eynsham & Cassington Ward from 2007-2011. View District Councillors' report to Annual Parish Meeting.

    "We have been Eynsham residents since 1997, moving here to take up a new job. Since then, my wife Jean has become the minister of the Baptist Church, having completed her training in Oxford, and both children have been through Bartholomew School. I'm still working full-time managing the development of new products for an electronic instrument manufacturer in Witney.

    We very much enjoy living in the village, close to both city and country and with a lively and active community.

    "As a Parish and District Councillor, I want to contribute to maintaining and improving that quality of life, making the village a place where anyone can afford to live and be a part of the community.

    "I'm a member of GreenTEA whose long term aim is to sustain that same quality of life as oil gets scarce and energy more expensive and, when I get the time, I'll enjoy some of the practical aspects of sustainable living in my gardening and DIY."

  • Jane Baldwin

    Parish Councillor since November 2014.

    I have lived in the village since 2006 and have two children who attended the primary school and who are now at Bartholomew School. I feel extremely fortunate to live in Eynsham, as a family we appreciate and have enjoyed all that the village has to offer - allotments, sports clubs, cubs & scouts, carnival, the village show - and understand the huge volunteer effort involved.

    My work is in the historic environment and I am Assistant Director of Oxford Preservation Trust and have considerable experience of the challenges facing communities today particularly those with a rich heritage and valued history like Eynsham. I previously worked for Oxford Archaeology and my first excavation was at Eynsham Abbey. I am looking forward to being able to make a difference to my place.

  • Gordon Beach

    Chairman of the Parish Council. View report to Annual Parish Meeting 21/04/2015

  • Andrew Bickley

    Parish Councillor since September 2011.

    I have lived in Eynsham since 1998 and have become more aware during that time of the work which the Parish Council does to improve village life. I look forward to helping in whatever way I can.

    My wife Liz and I have two sons - one is now at university having successfully studied at Eynsham Primary School, Bartholomew School and Cherwell College. The other has just finished at the primary school and is moving up to Bartholomew this September.

    I work for the Atomic Energy Authority at the Culham Centre for Fusion Energy (CCFE) near Abingdon on government liaison, having previously been involved in business strategy at Harwell, and studied physics at University.

  • Sue Brown

    Parish Councillor since September 2011.

    I was born in Eynsham and have lived here most of my life. My 3 children all attended local schools. I work as an officer for Oxfordshire Country Council in School Organisation and Planning.

    I enjoy walking, reading and archaeology. I also have a passion for Oxford United FC and am a season tickets holder.

    I am keen to see the village community continue thrive and grow. I have a particular interest in issues around disability and children and young people.

  • Patricia Crowley

    Parish Councillor since November 2014.

    Having visited my partner’s family in Eynsham since the 80s, I moved here in 2003 to be closer to family and in time for our son to start primary school. I was keen that he should be able to walk safely to school which I couldn’t be sure of where we lived in London.

    I appreciate the local amenities, shops, schools, social groups and public transport which enable me (most of the time) to juggle a work / life balance.

    I currently work 3 days per week (at home and in London) as Project / Communications Manager for a public health research centre based at UCL. I have over 25 years’ experience as a project manager, in international disaster relief and development and in the university sector.

    I’d like to see that changes in Eynsham are positive and beneficial to the community and welcome this opportunity to join the parish council.

  • Peter Emery

    Parish Councillor since 3 August 2010 and a District Councillor since May 2014. Holds an evening ‘surgery’ on the first Wednesday of the month between 18:30 and 20:00 at the Bartholomew Room. View report to Annual Parish Meeting 21/04/2015

    “My wife and I moved here from Worcester and found ourselves in a lovely vibrant, friendly community, we love it here. Since moving to the village I have become involved with the Council by serving on the Communications Committee.

    “I recently completed my BA in Art History at Oxford Brookes, as a VERY mature student, but will my studies end there? I don’t know yet, watch this space.”

  • Andy Mosson

    I have been living in Eynsham for nearly forty years so nearly qualify as a local resident. My wife and I have brought up our two daughters here and the village schools have played a big part in tying us into the community.

    This is my second stint on the Parish Council, having completed twelve years in the past. That period as a councillor led to my becoming chair of the Primary School Governors, as well as involving me in the playing fields committees and the two village charities.

    My working life is spent in the NHS, where I am Technical Manager for the Oxford Kidney Unit responsible for the team ensuring safe operation of all the dialysis machines within a fifty mile radius of Oxford. Through work, I have also chaired the professional body of Renal Technologists, sit on two BSI committees, the Federation for Healthcare Science and the Registration Panel for Clinical Technologists.

    I have always been a keen cricketer and play squash regularly, suffering the aches and pains accordingly ... who said sport was good for you!

  • Sue Osborne

    Parish Councillor since August 2006.

    I have lived in Eynsham since 1986 (apart from a 3 year stint in Cassington). I am a keen walker and enjoy camping, pubs, the theatre and the countryside. I love being involved in village life, both through the Parish Council and by simply living here.
