My name is Stephen Phipps and I live on the Barford Rd and have been a resident of Bloxham for 27 years.
My wife and I have brought up two children in Bloxham, both attending Bloxham Primary school and the Warriner Secondary school.
I was a governor at Bloxham Primary school holding the roles of Chair and Vice-Chair with an interest in school buildings development, recruitment and finance.
I recently supported Bloxham Parish Council by presenting objections to two new large building applications at their appeals and I am now involved in the development of the Bloxham Neighbourhood Plan.
I am about to retire in 2013 and I am now able to provide more time to supporting my village in retaining its rural identity whilst helping it to develop and prosper.
