Sheet Parish Council

Members of the Parish Council & their responsibilities

RON DARK - Chair

ron dark

Responsibilities: Finance. email:

I've lived in Sheet for 25 years, bringing up 3 children in the village, and have always enjoyed being involved in the local community. In particular, I served for more than ten years as a Governor and Chair of Governors at Sheet school, and loyally support other village institutions.

Whilst my career choice of accountancy has little to commend it, at least I have considerable experience of producing and auditing the financial statements of local authorities, including many of the parishes of East Hampshire.

GAIL MARTIN - Vice-Chair

gail martin

Responsibilities: Village Hall, Roads. email:

I have spent my life in education and research, both in Britain and abroad. I have lived in Sheet since 1999. Since retiring I have worked in the Criminal Justice System concentrating on the welfare of children. As a councillor I am particularly concerned to see that the village is a place where all residents, young and old, feel happy and secure.

Responsibilities: Allotments, Sheet Common, Millennium Field. email:

Hi I am Tony Clear. I have been a self employed landscape gardener for over fifty years and have carried out a large number of contracts , in both construction and maintenance around hospitals, schools, fire stations etc. I have carried out private contracts locally and in London. It is with this background that I thought that I might be of some use on the council. This may or may not be the case. I love tractors.


alan biddlecombe

Responsibilities: Finance, SDNPA liaison/open spaces. email:

I have been living in Sheet since 1997, and I am finding new aspects of the Parish every day. I am a retired company director, having worked in Design Engineering and Technical Recruitment. I now volunteer with the SDNP and this gives me an insight into environmental management, and how we enjoy our open spaces. I am keen to encourage the appreciation of the unique countryside we live in, and support the local groups that use our facilities, that keep the village thriving and vibrant.

I have lived in Village Street, Sheet since 1985. I was married in Sheet Church, have two children who have both been christened in Sheet Church and who both attended Sheet Primary School. I run a local bespoke woodworking business and I like to get things done. I believe very strongly in the community and have great respect for the


robin forrest

Responsibilities: Recreation Ground, Allotments, Sheet Common. email:

A retired General Dental Practitioner, Robin and his family have lived in the same house in Pulens Lane, Sheet since 1983. No experience at all of council committee work but happy to learn and use my skills, hopefully to the benefit of the Parish. Aware that although the identity of the village itself is very strong, at least a third of the parish electorate lives south of the old London Road, and this shouldn't be lost sight of.


chris wilton

Responsibilities: Finance and Planning. email:

Chris Wilton is married to Dianne, and they have two children and two grandchildren. After taking a degree in Arabic Language and Islamic History, he joined the Diplomatic Service and spent the majority of his overseas career in the Middle East. On leaving the Diplomatic Service, he ran a marketing consultancy company, qualified as an investment adviser, and held various unpaid positions including Chairman of Raleigh International, the youth development charity.

He and Dianne moved to Sheet in 2006. Chris is currently Chairman of the Board of the Rosemary Foundation, and Executive Chairman of Petersfield ShopMobility. In his spare time, he sings in two choirs, plays the piano, enjoys travel, and grows vegetables.

He reckons Sheet is without a doubt one of the best villages to live in, and will do all he can to make sure it stays that way.

JENNY HOLLINGTON - Clerk and Responsible Financial Officer (RFO)


I have lived in the neighbouring parish of Steep since 2006 and became Clerk to Steep Parish Council in 2008, a role I very much enjoyed. In 2012 I gained the CiLCA qualification (Certificate in Local Council Administration) and was asked whether I would help out as Interim Clerk for Sheet Shadow Council whilst Sheet Parish Council was first being formed. Initially I thought of this as a short term role but came to very much enjoy working with the new Parish Councillors and residents of Sheet and decided to apply for the position.

The role is part-time - currently 13 hours a week - but I can be contacted anytime Monday to Friday during office hours.
