Responsibilities: Village Hall, Roads. email: Gail Marin

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: Finance, SDNPA liaison/open spaces. email: Alan Biddlecombe

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.

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

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.

I have lived in the village for 27 years. Always taking a keen interest in village events and for many years I was involved in the work done in setting up these events, be it building boats or shepherding ducks down the river. I was the Chairman of the Friends of Sheet School whilst my children were at the school and involved with the school firework displays for several years having taken over from John Hartley. I have sometimes strayed over the boarder to run quizzes in the Harrow and set off fireworks at Steep.

Unfortunately, work pressures have meant that I had less Timme to actively give to the events in the village for the last few years, only attending and not being involved. Work has changed. I am now running an accountancy practIce in the village and, once again, have Ime to get properly involved.

I believe that if you want the quality of village life and all the benefits that this brings, you have to be involved.

I have had the privilege of living and bringing up my family in Sheet for over 30 years. I have worked as a teacher full time for 12 years and on a part time bases since in many areas of physical education, this has included working with Sheet primary school. While my 3 children attended Sheet Primary School, I was a member and finally chair of FOSS, helping with the various fund-raising events for the school.

My other committee/organisational experience has come from working with PRFC, county and regional girls rugby teams.

I would like to see Sheet keep it's positive, friendly, caring nature while being flexible when looking to the future.

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.
