I’ve lived in Harlestone Manor since December 2015. I live here with my husband Paul, and between us we have five children ranging from 16 to 45! Being one of the first families to move in, we have seen the area grow from  just a muddy field into two thriving estates. We are keen to see this community grow, and have actively involved ourselves in projects such as installing the Tommy Statue at the entrance to Harlestone Manor. My career has spanned a variety of public sector roles and I currently work full time as a manager in the NHS. My professional background includes performance management, service improvement and business development. I feel honoured to have been co-opted onto the Parish Council and am looking forward to working with my fellow councillors to make this a parish of which we can all be proud.

Stewart Clark

I have lived on Harlestone Manor since it was built, moving here from Durham for work in December 2015. I am 47 years old, married to Vicky Clark and have two children, I also have two dogs who keep me active and walking around this beautiful area.

I am pleased to have been voted to the position of Vice Chairman of the Council.

I have been an active member of the community since moving here and I am passionate about the area we live in, always the best for all.

I am particularly keen on our safety and security and I am your Neighbourhood Watch coordinator. I want the best for the area we live in and hope to be involved in the public and open spaces within the Parish. I am finding the role on the council challenging but hopefully with a little effort we can ensure we live in a Parish that is well managed, friendly and responsive to the community.

Lorna Beard

I moved to Harlestone Manor in October 2015 when the estate was still being built having brought off plan before the first hole was dug and have loved being here ever since.  I live here with my husband Paul, three children and two dogs.

I work as a head teacher with a specialism in safeguarding and inclusion.  We live in such a great part of Northampton and I believe that as the Parish grows we have the opportunity to further develop the Parish  through the work of the community group alongside the Parish Council.

Lots of us live with young people and I would like to develop their voice and participation in shaping the area into a truly inclusive and welcoming part of town.

Christopher Bryant

I moved to Harlestone Manor in May 2016 where I live with my wife Kryssy, three young children and family dog.

A huge pull to move to the parish are the children’s parks, open spaces and adjacent Firs for walks and bike rides that we regularly enjoy as a family.

With a background in multimedia and a career working with technology I endeavour to provide technical support to the website, online communications, and any live events held within the parish. I am also keen to help ensure our local children have a safe outdoor environment to play in.

I am honoured and fully respect my role as councillor to represent and work with the residents of the Parish to drive positive change and ensure every single member of the community is represented by the council as best, we possibly can.

Simon Elton-Thomson

I joined Harlestone Manor in 2017 when the development was still very young and I have witnessed it’s evolution through a number of already notable milestones not least the construction of Loxton Fields and the incorporation of the new standalone parish “Harlestone Manor Parish”.

I am keen to ensure that all people from all backgrounds are considered as this parish continues to grow and develop.

I have spent the majority of my career working with the Business Support sector and understands meeting the needs of ever changing environments can be tough, however having the right people with the right amibition in the right roles can ensure a clear route to delivering successful outcomes, Which is what I hope to bring to the Parish Council.

It is an honor to be in a position to work with other residents to help shape our community, and I am delighted to have embarked on this journey right at the very begining. This is a truely historic time and I look forward to the challenges ahead.

I’ve lived on Harlestone Manor with my husband Ian since April 2016 having relocated from London to Northampton in 2015. I’ve worked in events for the past twenty years, a role I’ve loved and which has taken me all over the world. I spent 18 years working in corporate event companies developing conferences, content for exhibitions and managing event teams. For the past two years I’ve been a freelance conference director. I love living on our development and being so close to Harlestone Firs. I feel honoured to have been co-opted onto the Parish Council and look forward to addressing the issues that matter to our residents.

I was born, grew up and went to school in Oxford, I lived in Wimbledon for 7 years before moving to Harlestone 20 years ago.

I live on a small nine acre farm that keeps me very busy with horses and allotments.

Apart from my friends and family including three grandchildren, my passions are my classic Volkswagens, football, music and my four dogs.

My aim is to be part of a Harlestone Manor Parish Council that is active, committed, friendly and inclusive. A Council that cares for it’s community, manages it’s open spaces and promotes wildlife.
