Your Councillors

Chairman, Councillor Lesley Harvey

Lesley is married to Nick and lives in Little Alne, having moved there around two and a half years ago after spending seven years overseas and prior to that living in North London.  Since then they have spent some time getting settled in what was to both of them a new area of the UK. They have four children – two boys and two girls, both boys are married with children and both girls are still enjoying the single life in London.  At home they are joined by two very ‘enthusiastic’ chocolate Labradors, twelve chickens and four ducks – and frequently by their children and their families.

Lesley has a strong commitment to the environment and the community – she has worked for several charitable projects such as the Bangkok Breast Cancer Group (a voluntary support group), the Syria Trust for Development (an NGO), was on the think tank for CSR in Dubai and has been an avid participant in quite a few fund raising events.

Her work background is in Human Resources initially and then in Management Consulting she now has her own consulting business specializing in organizational change and development both in the UK and Internationally.

Lesley joined the Parish Council in March 2011. Contact:; Tel. 01789 488 048; Mobile 07912623990 Willow Cottage, Little Alne, Wootton Wawen, B95 6HN
