JaneBrettJane Brett has been co-opted onto the parish council, bringing the number up to 10 councillors, which is a full complement. Here is a brief profile written by Jane herself.
“My parents are locals so I was born and raised in Sunningdale, attending Holy Trinity School before going on to Windsor Girls’ School.  Afterwards I moved away to attend art college and then worked in London and Brussels before I returned to the area in 1987.  I moved back to Sunningdale in 2006 and live in Clarefield Court.  I love the countryside and volunteer for Surrey Wildlife Trust.  I help survey the wildlife on Chobham Common and clear gorse and other scrub so the heathland remains.  I am also a keen walker and most weekends I have a walk either on the common, in Windsor Great Park or around Sunningdale. I would like to see Sunningdale retain its village identity whilst also having the amenities needed for the local community to thrive in the long-term.”
