Village pair join council

PEPPARD Parish Council has two new members.

Joe Berger, of Colmore Lane, is finance director for VAS Capital, an investment bank based in London.

He and his wife Finola have had a home in the village since 1999.

He said: “I have concerns over planning and development and want to make sure it is done properly and with due regard to the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. I want the environment to be looked after.

“I’ve lived in the area since 1996 but have been busy working but now I want to try to contribute more.”

Former Henley mayor Jeni Wood moved to Stoke Row Road with her husband Barry in 2014. They previously lived in Blandy Road, Henley.

She has previously been a member of both Henley Town Council and South Oxfordshire District Council.

Her husband was chairman of the council for five months in 2015 but quit after a number of rows with fellow members.

l A parish councillor in Sonning Common has stood down after only six months. Anthony I’Anson, who works in telecommunications, says he can’t remain on the council due to work commitments.
