Cllr Chris Britt
I have now been a resident of Studley for well over 30 years, having moved here, with my wife Sonia, in 1989. Our three daughters all attended Studley schools and still live locally.
My career began in horticultural research and evolved into agri-environmental research and consultancy. More recently, what began as a spare time interest, with voluntary support for my three competitive swimmer daughters, has become my main job – as I have worked for various local employers as a swimming teacher and coach. For several years I was the Head Coach at Redditch Swimming Club and, although now semi-retired, I still regularly teach at Abbey Stadium and near Stratford.
I was formerly, several years ago now, a parent governor at Studley Community Infants’ School. For the past year or so, I have been regularly working as a volunteer at the Where Next charity’s Spernal nursery and garden centre, working with adults with learning difficulties.
As a co-opted member of Studley Parish Council, which I joined in November 2021, I serve on the Council’s Planning Committee and the management committee of Studley Sports and Social Club. I also have specific responsibilities for Studley Library and Studley Nature Reserve.
