MEET THE COUNCILLORS - Part 1 - Part 2 Part 3

Tony Willars

Tony Willars

A retired self-employed retailer, Tony is married with two children and two grandchildren. He is a native Barrovian, but has also lived in Sileby and Seagrave.

He has been on Hall Orchard PTFA and the Scout Committee. Following retirement, he wants to put a bit into the village.

He hates litter and is particularly concerned at the absence of litter bins away from the centre of the village.

He says "I wish to see the quality of life for all people in Barrow to be improved".

Judith Rogers

Judith Rodgers

A resident at 155 for 35 years, Judith retired as a teacher last year. She is married with three children and four grandchildren.

As long standing member and currently chair of the Community Association, Judith has played a major role in village affairs for some time. But she sees the Parish Council as having the real power.

"Good communication is all", she says. "We have Barrow Voice, Barrow Focus, the Neighbourhood Watch leaflet and now the village website. There are three computers available to the public in the library and I would like to discuss the possibility of the same facility being made available in the Parish Council office".

Brian Henman

Brian Henman

Semi-retired building surveyor and lifelong village resident. Now starting his 25th year in the Chair.

Why does he stay on? Because he enjoys it. Also, with such a big turnover of Councillors this time, he thought that his years of experience would be valuable.

He regards making progress with Sileby Road enhancement as being one of the big challenges facing the Council. Drawings are available, providing for traffic calming, including central refuges, and improvements to the verges. But where will the money come from?

Brian says "I look forward to serving the village as Chairman of the Council for the next twelve months and I hope that we can continue with the successes that we have achieved over the last four years".
