Register of interests
I have lived in and around Storrington for over 40 years, having gone to school locally in Storrington and Steyning. On leaving university I worked in reinsurance, which I left when I had my first son to set up my own business as a freelance translator, which I still run now. I joined Sullington Parish Council in 1991, having always been interested in local issues, with a special interest in planning. I have been on the planning committee since my first meeting, when I left as Chairman of the committee! For many years I was Vice Chairman of the Council – first Sullington and then, after the merger, Storrington & Sullington. I took over as Chairman in 2011 and continue to be on all of the committees and am involved with Council matters on a daily basis.
I have been a Parish Councillor since 2004 and am currently the Chairman of the Recreation and Property Committee, with a special interest in youth provision and well-being. I feel very fortunate to live in Storrington and am passionate about protecting its heritage, history and green spaces. Being a Parish Councillor has increased my knowledge about the place in which I live and the people I live alongside. Over the years I have found the role varied, challenging, at times comical but ultimately rewarding.
I moved to Storrington two years ago having lived in Sussex most of my life. I have been a professional singer, air hostess, telecoms engineer and trainer and successful beauty spa owner and therapist. I am now semi-retired working from home and have the time to dedicate to the issues and concerns of my local community.
I moved from Brighton to Storrington with my partner and son in 2014 and we quickly discovered we had found a wonderful place to bring up a family., Whilst the village is thriving and busy, people still take time to talk to each other in shops and streets - such a contrast to city-life. The next year, I became a Parish Councillor because I hoped there might be something I could do to help Storrington & Sullington continue to grow while holding on to all the great things we have come to appreciate about it. My work is in research, international development and digital marketing and if you keep your eyes open, you might spot me at work in my office on West Street.
My wife and I have lived in Storrington since 2014. I work for an insurance brokers and have done so for 13 years and my wife works for a national charity. I grew up near Horsham and then lived and worked in London before moving back to West Sussex in 2005. I am currently serving on the Infrastructure, Communications and Environment Committee and have an interest to assist my fellow Parish Council members to make sure Storrington remains such a great place to live.
I have lived in Storrington for just over 30 years. I have three young sons and have always shown great interest in local community matters. Storrington is a great place to bring up a family and I feel honoured to be serving on the local council and feel I have a lot to contribute. If I get any spare time, I enjoy long dog walks and curling up with a good book!
I moved to Storrington in 1987 in one of many moves in a career in metals and plastics packaging manufacture here and abroad. And stayed. I’ve been a member of the Parish Council on and off since the late 1990's, serving on, sometimes chairing various committees, and a spell as council vice chairman.I’ve also enjoyed around 20 years working with the Community Minibus.
Having previously lived in Horsham for 31 years, after our two children moved into their own homes my wife and I moved to Sullington - nearly 4 years ago now. I really enjoy the village life and community atmosphere and when I had the opportunity to join the Parish Council nearly two years ago I was very pleased to do so.I am on two of the Parish Council sub committees, a member of Sandgate Conservation Society, I help with the distribution of the 3 Heralds and am a supporter of Speedwatch which, as part of the Community Action Plan, I am pleased will be liaising with the PC to deter speeding through the Village.
I have lived and worked at Sullington Manor Farm, a beef and arable farm next to Sullington church, for 25 years where we brought up our two daughters. The South Downs are an important asset for Storrington and Sullington Parish and for Horsham District and every year we are delighted to welcome over 800 visitors from all over the world to stay in our cottages. We have recently revitalised the ancient barns of the medieval farmstead in response to an increased interest in the history of Sullington and greater leisure use of the South Downs. I have a background in business including time as Operations Director at the Weald and Downland Open Air Museum. I have worked full time in our own business for over 10 years. I am eager to participate fully in community life and take an active part in the community of St Mary's Church, Sullington. I am a member of Sandgate Conservation Society and the Storrington area committee for Family Support Work, a charity which exists to help and support families in difficulty in our local area. I joined the hard-working Parish Council in 2014 to help ensure that Storrington continues to be a thriving, enjoyable and co-operative place to live and work.
A resident since 2009 and Parish Councillor since 2012, Mark is now semi-retired, managing a few business interests in London related to interior architecture and design, whilst developing his interest as a bespoke furniture designer and a three dimensional artist. As an active and concerned local resident, Mark has applied himself to the practical requirements of various community initiatives and assisting specific community groups. Particular interests and concerns for the community include youth provision, business development and social and community enhancements. The parish, its district and county are now the matters of his concern, as the years spent in Storrington have developed an understanding that a wider scope of influence is what is required to assist with local concerns.
General Maintenance & Premises Supervisor
I am responsible for the maintenance of all areas and buildings that the Parish Council own and you will probably see me wading around the Storrington Village Memorial pond from time to time. I am in my mid-thirties, married and have two beautiful daughters. I have lived in Storrington and the surrounding villages since birth. During my life so far, I have applied myself to many positions of work, some of which include a ski instructor, lifeguard, sports centre manager and carpenter. I have been employed by the Council since August 2013 and have felt very welcomed and at home in Storrington. I am an avid sports fanatic and will play pretty much any sport available to me. I am currently a qualified Sussex Rugby Referee and on most Saturday afternoons you will find me running around a rugby pitch in the Sussex area and hopefully further afield soon. During the rugby off-season, I turn my hand to cricket and you will probably see me on the cricket pitch in Storrington either playing or cutting the grass.
Mr Paul Marshall
