An Introduction to the Trustees of Heart of Streatley

Nick Barnes

Nick Barnes

Chairman

 

Nick became a trustee when he joined Streatley Parish Council in 2014. At the time up to three parish councillors were expected to join the trustees, if only to ensure a good relationship with the council. Since then councillors have left and more councillors have joined, including Joanne Ashmore (see below).

Nick has lived in the village for 20 years and worked locally for most of them. In another 20 years he might be considered a local. He brings IT skills (including this web site) but otherwise hopes nobody notices that he knows nothing about meadows.

Below is the latest available annual report, from March 2020.

As well as being a First Responder, Nikki also runs a charity that operates in the Gambia. She has also been running the Streatley Emergency Response Group efforts during the COVID pandemic, and often wonders where the time goes.
