Childrey Parish Council 2017 consists of the following Councillors:


Clare Collier, Chair

I have lived at Angels Grange on New Road for the past 10 years, where my husband Alistair and I breed and train Suffolk Punch cart horses. I have lived in the area all my life and have worked at Harwell for over 30 years. I have a PhD in biochemistry and am Delivery Manager for the Energy and Climate Change Practice of Ricardo-AEA. I joined Childrey Parish Council about a year ago. I had previously been a Parish Councillor in Chilton before the birth of my son and I felt it was time to ‘stick my oar in’ again!

I am passionate about the views of individuals being heard at all levels of Government and the Parish is the place to start with that. I try to encourage people to engage with the Parish Council and try to understand the views of the people who live and work in the village. I also feel very strongly about the local village environment and maintaining and enhancing the facilities and businesses with in the village.
