Patrick Barr

I am a Registered General Nurse and currently work as a nurse in West London. Previously I was a Charge Nurse in A&E and I still work in A&E as required to support the NHS.

Councillor Gerald McGregor - Chiswick Homefields

I grew up in Paddington, escaping from a bleak inner-city upbringing by passing the 11`+ and attending St Marylebone Grammar School (a school since destroyed by Shirley Williams). The teaching was so good that I got a place at Exeter University and studied Politics, Government and Geography.

Joanna Biddolph

I moved into Chiswick (to a flat on the Turnham Green ward side of Devonshire Road) in 1983 and currently live in the Gunnersbury Park Garden Estate conservation area in the north west corner of the ward.

Councillor Sam Hearn - Chiswick Riverside

I have lived in the Chiswick Riverside Ward since 1988 and have represented its residents as a Councillor since 2008. I have ensured that the voice of local residents has been heard loud and clear on contentious issues such as CPZs and waste recycling. In addition I have successfully resolved a wide range of problems for individual residents. My experience as a qualified accountant and businessman has proved invaluable on a number of key council committees. I remain a Governor of the wonderful Strand on the Green Junior School that both my children attended.
