PARISH COUNCILLORS

Sheila Bulpett

Chairman - Councillor Sheila Bulpett

I have been a Councillor since May 2015. I became the Chair of the Parish Council in February 2021, I previously held the posts of Finance and Planning Committee chairs. I have lived in Wendover since February 1985 when we moved back to be close to my husband’s family and the place of his childhood. We have four children, all attended local schools and activities so we have been involved with the community since then. After university I worked as a Research Chemist before starting the family. Later I completed a PGCE to become a secondary school science teacher in various local schools. After 19 years I retired to devote more time to family and interests which include art, music, gardening and pilates. I am a member of U3A, Chiltern Society, BBOWT and the Royal Society of Chemistry.

Jo Durden Moore

Vice-Chair  -  Councillor Jo Durden-Moore

I have been a Councillor since July 2020 and Vice-chair since May 2021.  Alongside my Councillor role, I am a Governor at Aylesbury Grammar School, work with Wendover HS2 Mitigation Group, Wendover Resettlement Assistance Programme and as Global Brand Director for IT company Lenovo.

 

Relocation brought me to Bucks 4+ years ago with my husband and 4 rescue dogs & cats. We settled just outside of Wendover and love everything that the town and the surrounding villages have to offer. Passionate about animals, wildlife, yoga, walking, the environment, and upcycling, I truly believe there is so much we can all achieve individually and collectively for our villages, towns, and communities. 

 

Wendover Parish will require visionary planning for the future, to ensure sensitive development of our vibrant and historic market town and that it can retain all that makes it so very special and unique. Wendover has much to offer but has many pressures on it, not only having to serve those who reside and work in the Parish, but also many of the ‘feeder villages’ who depend on Wendover too. I hope that our Council can continue its sterling work supporting the Parish and all those who depend on it, and I am proud to be part of this eclectic group of people.

Councillor Mark Standen

Having grown up in North West London I followed the well-trodden trail up the A41 via Watford and Chesham and eventually settled in Wendover over 4 years ago with my wife and 2 primary school age boys. I am a freelance Sustainable Construction Consultant specialising in energy modelling and therefore have a professional and personal interest in climate change and sustainability.

I enjoy watching and participating in all sports - particularly running, skateboarding and football (I’ve been a Watford FC season ticket holder for a long time!). I also love music, going to the pub and enjoying the beautiful outdoors on our doorstep. I currently chair the Wendover open spaces working group, I am therefore keen to improve the outdoor amenities in Wendover particularly for young people.

My wife and I have been local residents since 1994, having originated from North West London. Our children were educated in local schools in Wendover & Aylesbury. I am semi-retired from a career in Finance & Banking, which involved me working in many countries around the world. I am now actively involved in working with a number of local charities. I am a keen sports fan, having been an active participant in both athletics and football in my youth and now enjoy running, walking and playing golf. I believe in social justice, the need to address climate change and I want to help local businesses to thrive and ensure Wendover remains a place we can all enjoy.
