I have been a member of Howden Town Council since May 1999. During this period I have been Chairperson/Mayor for over four years and have served on most of the individual committees. My interest in people and the community originates from my previous full time occupation as a Health Visitor. I represent the Parish Councils on the Standards Committee for the East Riding of Yorkshire Council.
My other interests are Howden Civic Society, Howden and District U3A, Howden Luncheon Club, and Goole and District Bereavement Care.

I grew up in Howden from the age of 9 and attended Howden Junior and Senior Schools. I then completed an apprenticeship in the aerospace industry, where I am still employed as an engineer.
I joined the council in 2011 because I wanted to help out with local matters, particularly the more hands-on tasks and have been Chair of the Planning Committee since 2012.
I have enjoyed being more involved with the local community and getting to know more people in the town.

Born in Eastrington and a former pupil and Head girl at Howden School, I have lived in Howden for over 36 years. Having recently retired from a long and successful career in teaching I now have the time to follow other interests. I love 'my town' of Howden and consider it has tremendous potential. I was delighted to join Howden Town Council following my co-option in August 2014. In my role as a Town Councillor I work with fellow Councillors and local organisations to ensure our town is a great place to live, work and relax for all members of the community.

I have lived in Howden since 2004. I am one of many residents of the town who has experienced problems with the drains/flood situation. I have attended most monthly council meetings since 2012 with a view to working with ERYC and other agencies to resolve the drain flooding situation. I joined the Town Council in August 2014 to continue this quest and to serve the community in the many other things the Town Council do.

Originally from Leeds, I moved to Howden six years ago to be closer to my business in Goole. I am a wife and mother to two boys aged 22 and 13 and after working in Howden and Goole for 27 years we thought it was time to settle closer to work. Since moving here we have found Howden to be a fabulous and friendly town and can't imagine living anywhere else. I joined the council in 2011 to get more involved with the town and amongst other things have helped organise the town events.

Craig Thackray

I am married with three children and have lived in Howden for over twenty years. Over this time I have been involved in many local organisations and events including: Howden Pre-School, football coaching and as a youth worker. I have also volunteered with adults with learning disabilities, ex offenders and within NHS drug and alcohol services.
Historically, I have worked in business and management; however I currently work in acute mental health services.
I love the town of Howden and feel it has so much to offer its residents and those who come and visit this great historical place.
My drive and passion is trying to make a positive difference to the town I live and the lives of those within our community. The future looks exciting for Howden and I look forward to being one of your local representatives.
