Name Information

Tina Clark

Councillor and Chair of the Parish Council

I have lived in the village since 2007 and been a member of the Parish Council since 2013 and lucky enough to be Chair since 2017.  I have a background in Administration in both the public and private sectors but am happily retired now.  I love living in the village and have always found it to be a friendly, inclusive place.  I hope that during my time on the Parish Council I can find ways to ensure that all our parishioners, whether they be young or old, newcomers or long term residents,  feel the same way and are encouraged to become involved in getting to know their neighbours and joining in the life of the village.

Gareth Davies

Councillor, Vice-Chair of the Parish Council and Chair of the Staff Committee

I have lived in Kent for 32 years, so have a great deal of experience working and living in the county.  Although I was not born here (so am neither a Kentish Man nor a Man of Kent), I have lived in Kingswood for 12 years, and have been a member of the Broomfield and Kingswood Parish Council on two separate occasions during that time.

Chris Pink

Councillor and IT specialist

I was co-opted to the Parish Council in February 2020.

I moved from Hollingbourne to Kingswood in 1998 and have enjoyed the peaceful nature of the village ever since.

I currently work as Technical Director for a small local company based in Lenham Heath and have a few other Business interests and currently involved in setting up an international charity for the support of the Hospital and People of my wife's Home Region of Inyathi near Bulawayo Zimbabwe.  I am also a STEM (Sceince, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) Ambassador.

Aimee Parker

Councillor and Staff Committee Member

I have grown up within the village and lived here for nearly 30 years. My Grandfather was involved with the development of the village hall but sadly passed away during it's development so he never saw it complete. The Parker room is kindly dedicated in his name and memory.

Over the years I have become more involved within the community and having a young family I became a member of the Pre School Committee. I was previously on the committee for our village School and within this past year started the Baby & Toddler Group which has been greatly welcomed within the village. 

I was co-opted as a Councillor in August 2018 and am thoroughly enjoying being involved and look forward to hearing from fellow parishioners.

Simon Pearce

Councillor

My wife and I moved to Broomfield from London in January 2020 and are thoroughly enjoying the quieter pace of life and the beautiful surroundings. My professional background is in large scale projects and I look forward to using both my experience from my work life and enthusiasm for village life within the Parish Council.  

Malcolm Clarke

Councillor

We moved to Kingswood from Orpington in January 2020.

Kingswood has now become our home and for that I must give thanks to the reception from the people here.

I spent most of my working life as a Research Scientist followed by a period owning an Art Deco shop. There then followed a few years as a volunteer in a Children’s charity finally becoming their chairman.

Now, in retirement, my interests are pursuing my research studies, Astrophotography and Woodturning.

I felt it was time that I started to put some of my skills back into the village and to this end I became co-opted onto the Parish Council. I look forward to this work and look forward to meeting you in the near future.

Stephen Lakin

Councillor

I am truly delighted to have been considered and accepted as a co opted Councillor and member of this great team.

Prior to moving to Kingswood in 2016, I spent my earlier years in Nottingham, the Medway Towns and eventually settling in Meopham Kent.

Serving in the Fire and Rescue Service for a grand total of 30 years, my career has been devoted to public safety. I served in Kent, Essex and New Zealand as the Deputy Chief Fire Officer.

Since leaving the Fire Service, I spent a wonderful 5 years as the Head of Fire Safety at Heathrow and have recently taken up a role as the National Head of Fire for a company called Balfour Beatty specialising in fire and building safety and specifics around building regulations.

I have 3 grown up children and 4 Grandchildren. Many may have come across my wife who’s a local cake maker.

I hope to get to know many of you very soon. You’ll find me approachable and always willing to listen. It’s time now to give something back to this great community.

Hayley Roberts

Parish Clerk/RFO

I moved to the village almost five years ago and before that lived in Sutton Valence for a number of years. I am originally from Lincolnshire. I have a background in Financial Services and I am also the Treasurer of the village Preschool. I became Parish Clerk in March 2021.
