Sandhurst Candidate Profiles
Diane Allum-Wilson, Town Council Candidate for Owlsmoor. I am a retired Science Teacher. I am on the committee of the local residents group and also a volunteer driver. I look forward to serving the residents of Owlsmoor ensuring they are kept informed and their voice is heard before decisions are made. The Council should be more open and transparent with greater participation by residents. I enjoy living in Bracknell Forest and want to be involved in making it even better. My main interests are education and the provision of really affordable housing.
Sylvia Trevis, Town Council Candidate for Sandhurst Central. I have lived in Sandhurst for over 40 years and seen many changes. Of course, this is natural but not all changes for the better, especially for the youth. I took great pride in promoting policies and funding for the youth of Sandhurst when I was a councillor in 2003-7. Previously a Governor at Sandhurst School, helped raise funds for the Day Centre and promoted their service for our elderly. Founder member of the Patient Group for Sandhurst Group Practice and initiated many health events for the community and was a lead member in bringing Fair Trade to Sandhurst. We qualified to become a Fairtrade town but that was blocked by the Conservative run council. I developed a strong community programme for the future of Sandhurst which the Tories then ‘mothballed’ at the next election. Transport is still a problem if we are to improve our environment, along with bringing local concerns to the Borough over footpaths, roads, as well as planning implications, making Sandhurst Safe, and taking responsibility! Tories also blocked the upgrading of bus stops many years ago, which would have provided digital/timetables (as seen in Crowthorne), for the buses and they even stopped the funding for bicycle parking in the Memorial Park. I feel that going back to local politics may be a move that will help the many and not just for the few.
