This page gives details of the elected and co-opted members of Woughton Community Council, alongside the 'wards' (the estates) that they serve. 
Councillors are public servants and should comply with the Code of Conduct. This lays out the expectations of councillors whilst they are undertaking their duties. 
Councillors are paid an allowance each year to enable them to pay reasonable expenses that form part of their role (e.g. phone costs, travel costs, stationary, etc.). This is agreed each year by an independent panel, managed by Milton Keynes City Council. For the council year May 2023 - April 2024, these amount have been set at £877.00 for councillors, with higher payments for the Chair and Leader of the Council - £1753 per annum.

Hi folk's. My name is Alan Williamson and I am one of your three Beanhill parish councillors. I'm a retired builder and lived on Beanhill for 16 years. Before I became a councillor, I used to go to Moorland and help do a learn to cook cheaply group. 
I'm 76 years young and have been your councillor for the last 7 years and hope some of you have met and I have helped you in some way. If not and you need help, don't be afraid to phone or even knock my door for help in any way that is in my power to do. 
Many thanks Alan

Having lived in the parish since 1994 (Beanhill since 2014), I am pleased to join Woughton Community Council.  
I was Chairperson for the estate for a while and undertook trips, fundays, litters picks and other projects. I believe that everyone has a voice and should be heard. I helped out in our local community shop for just over a year and met some wonderful people.  
I am committed to improving our local environment, tackling issues of litter, fly tipping and dog fouling. I will support residents with issues and concerns which may include drug usage and anti-social behaviour. My door is always open and I have been told I make a wicked cuppa!

Hi, I am Deanna and I was Co-opt onto the council to represent Coffee Hall as one of 4 councillors. 
I was born in Dagenham and moved to Tinkers Bridge in 1998. I live there with my daughter and our 2 cats - I have brought my daughter up in the parish and have always believed this to be our home. This was one of the reasons I wanted to stand as a local councillor as I believe that looking after the parish as a whole, where our children are growing up and living in, can only be a great thing. 
I work along side other volunteers locally and help to run a Community Fridge, Larder & a Community Café where we help and support so many residents from within the parish, some outside of the parish also. 
I work full time as an office manager for a commercial catering company and have been there for over 10 years now.

Cllr Liz Simpkins 
Eaglestone Ward

Hi, I’m Liz! 
I am starting my second elected term as an Eaglestone Councillor.  I am the Vice Chair of the Operations and Resources Committee and a member of the Services and Community Committee.  I have supported the Eaglestone Youth groups and our environmental team in respect of planting and resources. 
The reason I stood again was twofold.  I wanted to see through getting Harrier Court work completed or just started, and not forgotten as it has in the past. This could mean residents living with scaffolding and a dark environment for a few more years to come. 
Secondly, I do feel passionate about Eaglestone as I was a long-term resident.  I wanted residents of Eaglestone to make the choice of whether they wanted me or not and as you said if I had not been re-elected, Eaglestone would only have one councillor. 
I am committed to: 
•Improving our local environment by tackling the issue of litter, dog fouling and fly tipping 
•Developing local facilities by focusing on our play areas and green spaces 
•Supporting residents with local issues or concerns, including drug use and anti-social behaviour 
•Resolving parking issues in Eaglestone, specifically the issue of non-residential parking. 
Although I no longer live on Eaglestone, I will continue to work towards improving the environment and services for all residents on Eaglestone and in the Woughton area until the end of my term as councillor. I am not a politician, just a person who wanted to get Eaglestone residents voices heard. 
I’d lived on Eaglestone for 42 years, and I was proud to call Eaglestone my home. For 18 years I worked in in Children Services, at Milton Keynes Council and have been retired for several years. I spent the two years before becoming a councillor campaigning to improve the non-residential parking on Eaglestone, and supporting residents on key local topics as part of the Eaglestone Residents Association. I enjoy gardening and have one allotments near where I live where I grow fruit and vegetables.

After my first marriage ended, I moved onto a narrowboat for 15 years, with Paul, who was my soul mate and became husband no2 in 2003. Paul became too ill to stay living on the boat, so we moved to Beanhill and then Coffee Hall in 2014, where sadly I lost Paul in 2017 to Pulmonary Fibrosis. 
I continue to live in Coffee Hall with my German shepherd (Bella) and my chihuahua, Briar. 
I have 3 Stepdaughters and 6 grandchildren who are regulars to Woughton. 
I have been a Councillor since 2007 as I wanted to make a difference where I lived and will continue to do my best for the residents of Woughton.
