Wimborne Minster Town Council

Cllr Carole Chedgy

May 2017

It has been my privilege to live in Wimborne for over 24 years, and I have had associations with the town for far longer. It was always my hope to live here one day. I am a retired non-practising solicitor. Previously I was a partner in a law firm in Christchurch, where I worked as a litigation solicitor specialising in family law. This gave me valuable insight to, and experience in, running a business, and dealing with clients` financial affairs and their businesses. I now work in a limited part time capacity, so have time for other activities associated with the town and its residents.

Over the years I have served on various committees in the legal world, and was a volunteer solicitor for Citizens Advice Bureau. These experiences, together with my involvement in legal work over the years, mean I can understand the difficulties of those from all walks of life. I was also Secretary and Membership Secretary for Wimborne Rugby Club. Currently I am a Vice president and still contribute when I can. I have been a friend of The Tivoli since March 1999.

My involvement with the Council as a resident started in mid 2016. As a result I attended many meetings, hoped I could contribute, and decided to stand as a candidate in the bi-election of May 2017. I was elected and now serve on the Resources and the Planning and Environment Committees.

I love living in Wimborne and care deeply about our town and its future. Most days I am out and about in the town, often walking my dog. I enjoy the variety of events which take place in the town and participate as much as possible. Walking and gardening are my favourite past times.

I am not party political. I believe that the Town Councillors should serve the interests of the town, its residents, and future generations.
