Parish Council Election 2nd May 2019 – Chris Miles

I am Chris Miles and I am pictured here with my wife of fifty-one years, Pauline.

We have lived in Packington all our married lives and love belonging to a small rural community. We were both teachers and I taught at Granville School in South Derbyshire for nearly forty years becoming the Head of Physical Education and Music Departments.

My current interests are; my family: the Packington Memorial Hall where I have been Chairman of the Management Committee for a considerable number of years: Testify Choir for which I accompany on piano and compose tunes: Parish Council and their associated Charities the Recreation Ground Charity and the Earl of Huntingdon Charity: I have also been active in Stop HS2.

During my time in Packington I have helped in organising; the Memorial Hall’s refurbishment, Packington Play Area Facilities, Carnivals, Concerts, Royal Celebration Days, Commemorative events; Bonfire Parties on the Recreation Ground; Duck Races on the Gilwhiskaw and have been involved in sing-alongs in the Pub at Christmas and on St George’s Day.

I have enjoyed being involved in community events and have met and become friends with a great many dedicated volunteer helpers from the village.

If elected for a further four-year term I will do my utmost to keep the spirit of Packington alive and to work tirelessly for the good of all residents.
