Council Members

John Shephard

I have lived in Minety since 1997 together with Alyson, Ben, Dan and Jonny. The three boys all went to Minety School, onto Malmesbury Secondary School and then onto University.

I have worked since 16 and three years ago finished my professional career as an Engineer at 56.

I’d describe myself as a jack-of-all trades, master of none; so hopefully a useful all-rounder. My main hobby now is wood-work, though I only started it 2 years ago, so definitely I have a lot to learn! I’m also quite a keen cyclist.

I have been a member of the Parish Council for just a few months now and look forward to making a positive contribution for parishioners particularly in light of increasing global environmental challenges which will affect us locally. Feb 2021.
