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.

My Husband, son and I moved to Storrington in 2001. Although I enjoyed my career in retail management, I left that all behind in 1998 to bring up Dan. I now work in a busy village Estate Agents – a job I love.

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.

Cheryl Brown

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.

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.

My interests include golf, being a member of Littlehampton Golf Club, fishing, flying and walking the dogs. 
I joined the Parish Council in June 2015, principally to help maintain the excellent environment that Storrington provides. I have found the Parish Council hard working and conscientious and am pleased to serve on both the Recreation & Property and Planning Committees.

My wife and I moved to Sullington 30 years ago with our two sons and it proved to be a wonderful place to live and bring up the boys. I have been a Secondary Head Teacher for 20 of those 30 years and am now retired. I am the Chairman of "Beyond the School Gates" which is a charity providng mentoring for excluded students and am the governor at Patcham High School in Brighton. 
I continue to play cricket for Watersfield and my other two main interests are photography and travel. My principal reason for joining the Parish Council is to provide whatever support I can for this hard-working group of people, in their mission to make sure that Storrington & Sullington continues to be such a good place to live.

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.
