CANDIDATES FOR ROYAL BOROUGH OF WINDSOR AND MAIDENHEAD COUNCIL:



Laura Binnie - PARK WARD.  
I am married with three children and work as a Geoscience Technologist for an International Oil Company. I help out at my local church and enjoy walking my dog in Windsor's beautiful Great Park. I strongly believe that Labour are the only party that can protect and improve the NHS. 




Peter Shearman: Eton Wick.


A local resident, I moved to Eton Wick in 2012 with my wife and two young children.

I believe communities are best served when they are represented by one of their own. I'm standing for the Labour Party at it is the only party that can make our care services and professionals feel valued and respected for the extraordinary work they do.




Yvonne Olney : CASTLE WITHOUT. 
I am married with 2 grown up children and work for an energy company as a Finance Manager. I love running  and am currently training for the London Marathon.  The Labour party is the only party to have a clear commitment to banning zero hour contracts.




Fiona Dent: CASTLE WITHOUT.

My career to date has been spent in running cutting edge initiatives for Central Government and ensuring good quality local public services to improve our quality of life. If elected I will hold the Council Leadership to account and make sure that Castle Without residents have a clear voice and influence in Council decisions.

Michelle Boundy: CASTLE WITHOUT.

I believe getting a fair deal in your money matters is a basic right - without this, people cannot feel included in their community. I have a long history of working with credit unions and I currently work for the financial ombudsman service. I am standing as a Labour party candidate because I believe they are the only party working to create a society that's fair for everyone.



Tony Mathews: Clewer North

Tony Matthews – I am a retired BBC-TV Producer. Have lived in Windsor since 1964. Until April 2014 I was Chair and founder Trustee of Windsor & Maidenhead Crossroads (Caring for Carers) for 22 years Now I’m a writer and beekeeper. I have written several plays about Windsor’s local history, performed by local people




Spike Humphrey: SUNNINGHILL & SOUTH ASCOT.


I moved to Sunninghill and then Ascot with my family 9 years ago, brought here by my work as a marketing manager.
I am keenly involved in the local community, in several areas including as a Parent Governor at Charters School, a Parish Councillor, a ‘virtual’ member of my local GP’s patient participation group, and I represent all the Windsor parishes on the Royal Borough’s Crime & Disorder overview & scrutiny panel.  I’m a leading member of the Save Heatherwood Hospital campaign (which succeeded in saving the hospital, and is now continuing to campaign for the right services to be provided there) and part of the team which promoted a Yes vote in the Neighbourhood Plan referendum – achieving 91% in favour.
As an economist by training, I am concerned about the cynical way in which the Coalition has returned to the bad old days of manipulating the economy.  They apparently aimed to generate a ‘feel good factor’ just in time for the general election, but the basis for the economic growth is very shallow indeed, and is the exact opposite of a long term plan which they claim to have.  More locally, I see a similar electioneering cynicism by current councillors, who claim to be cutting out ‘waste’ – but are actually cutting out the people who do the work, and so degrading the services we all rely on.




Jenny Ward: Datchet

Jenny is a long term resident of Datchet and is now retired. In the past, she worked locally for an international magazine and for the NHS. She has served as a school governor and is a member of Unison. Currently, she is the Chair of the Windsor Consituency Labour Party.




Peter Ward: Horton and Wraysbury

Peter has lived in the locality for many years and has been a member of the Labour Party for over 30 years. He works for the NHS and is a member of Unison.



Janet Campbell - Clewer East
Janet is married to David and has lived in Windsor since 2014. She is originally from a large family in Northampton. Her interests are reading, embroidery, cooking and socialising. She joined the Labour Party to help the poor and unemployed, end unfair sanctions on people looking for work, protect the NHS from privatisation and to end the bedroom tax.



Anne Brindle - Sunningdale
I am a former journalist who is married and has lived in Sunningdale for eight years. I now work in a local library and passionately believe that having access to good local services is vital to creating a strong and fair community for everyone.

Roy Reeves - Old Windsor
Roy is recently retired but was gardner to the Queen for very many years. He was also a GMB representative through his working life.

  1. Good candidates, but not for me to judge their professional suitability. I can only advise this https://essayfactory.uk/case-study. I often used this while studying at the institute and now it helps me spend more time with the children, since it frees me from some of the mandatory things that are needed in the work.
