Council Members

Martin Cole

I am a Parish Councillor of 30 yrs , not all at the same time having been chairman for a period of  that time.
At the age of 5 I came to school here in Brailes and continued my education locally.
I became a resident of Brailes in 1974 , I married in St. George’s Church Brailes and have a  grown up son and daughter. I am heavily involved in village life being,  highly active in the running and organizing of Brailes Show being chairman and president along the way. I am a trustee on Brailes Charities (Allotments) being chairman for a period of time and I am also a trustee on Brailes Free School Foundation charity.
Brailes has such a good community spirit, a thriving Primary school active village hall and a large playing field.  It would be good to get the sports clubs re-rectified again, a lot of generosity and work by residents has been done in the play area, this has made the village attractive to everyone.
We must make sure Affordable housing is available for our younger residents to reside here and need to provide this for our senior residents as well.
Vehicle speed through the village is a big concern at the moment.
