Councillors and the team

Wendy Way

I moved to Brize Norton in the late 1980s and joined the Parish Council in 2016 after taking the decision to move to part-time working.

My hobbies are gardening and my allotment, and I enjoy supporting my partner who races an Aston Martin DB4 with the owner that takes us to various motor racing circuits around the UK and Europe. You will also see me around the village walking my Cockerpoo, Maude.

Keith Glazier

I have been a resident of Brize Norton since 1997 and first joined the Parish Council in 2001. After a three-year break, I re-joined the Parish Council in March 2019. My main interest and reason for being a council member is Water Management and flood prevention. 

I also chair the Bampton and District Flood Prevention Group. The group comprises representatives from local villages and Specialist Officers from Oxfordshire County Council, West Oxfordshire District Council and the Environment Agency.

Les Goble

I moved to Brize Norton from Worthing, West Sussex in 1997.  I’m semi-retired and was asked by the Parish Council to produce a Neighbourhood Plan then joined the Parish Council in 2018.

Pip Squire

I am an engineer with over 35 years of experience in the construction industry in the UK and around the world.  In 2007 I joined a small specialist UK based data centre development company, where I head up the planning, design, energy and innovation team. 

In 2008 I moved to Brize Norton as it is equidistant between the sites that we are developing, and it is also back to my family roots. I joined the Parish Council in 2013/2014 and was elected Chairman in 2016 and 2017.

What little time I have outside work I spend with my partner gardening, on the allotment, on DIY projects around the home or with our children helping them with DIY in their homes as well as caring for elderly relatives, who live locally.

Claire Stewart

I am currently serving in the RAF and will be based here for the remainder of my service. I have lived in the area since 1998, with a 4-year break in 2000 when I lived at Lyneham. I moved to Brize Norton last year and currently live on Brize Meadow.

I am married with a young daughter who keeps me not only busy but inspired for the future. As a family, we like to bake together, go swimming, do the gardening and we can be regularly seen out cycling and playing on the village sports field. We also look forward to getting an allotment up and running again as we call it our ‘green gym’.

Chris Woodward

My name is Chris Woodward and I’m delighted to be a parish councillor for Brize Norton.

I’ve lived in the old Chapel up on Chapel Hill since 2016, with my wife Jayne, daughter Mackenzie and golden lab ‘Meg’ - but my connections to the village go back to the mid-90s when I attended the late Mr Goddard’s judo class for many years in the Elder Bank Hall. 

This isn’t my first foray into the life of council work, having served as a Witney Town Councillor for eight years, latterly becoming its deputy leader for three years and then the Town Mayor in 2017/18. For my day job, I am an Estate and ICT Manager for a Multi Academy Trust of Special Needs Schools, where I am responsible for risk, health and safety compliance, procurement best value on goods and services and how property and assets are maintained. 

I hope to meet and help as many people as possible while I am in post, and will gladly hear and share news and updates on one of my many social media platforms. 

I really look forward to meeting you, and if you ever see me watering out the front of The Chapel, do pop by and say hello!

Alison Risely
Parish Clerk (Proper Officer / RFO)

I moved to Brize Norton after 18 years as a primary school teacher in the Middle East in 2016. I am married with two sons who attend Burford School, and have a black Labrador.

I enjoy reading, sewing, gardening, music and travel. I believe that life is short, so I work hard to achieve as much as possible in my life.
