Councillor Mark Rosher

Born in Bristol, I’ve lived in the west country nearly all my life. At the turn of the century my family and I moved out to Charfield to escape the increasing traffic congestion and improve our daughter’s school option. I joined the Parish Council in 2007 initially in order to help bring the then nascent burial ground into actuality, and became Chairman of the Council in 2009.

I took early retirement from the National Grid in 2015, where I had been a professional electrical engineer for nearly thirty years. I now spend my time with Janet gardening and raising chickens, or out on Morrigan, my Triumph Thunderbird motorcycle. I’m an enthusiastic amateur photographer and a mediocre bass guitarist, and I have been known to sample beer from time to time. I am also a charity Trustee of, and an active Druid within The Druid Network.

I find the challenge of Parish Council work interesting and inspiring, and of course there is self-interest in working to improve ones own environment. I’d be happy to chat with anyone who was interested in the work of a Parish Councillor, over tea, coffee or even beer. There is always more that can be done…
