Cllr. Brian Edgeley


Brian and his wife moved to Firsdown in November 2000.

He was co-opted to the Parish Council in September 2007 and quickly became involved in the maelstrom of the Core Strategy of the area at that time and finds work on the Parish Council a good challenge for the little grey cells.

Cllr. Helen Edgeley

Helen was elected to the Firsdown PC in May 2013. She has lived in Firsdown since November 2000 and having two dogs has got to know a great many residents.

Along with her husband, Helen has been involved in many local events, the Firsdown Musical Events Group in particular, for which she has acted as secretary.

Having fully integrated into the community Helen is confident she understands and can fulfil the needs of Firsdown’s parishioners.
