Alex is married with two grown up children and has been a South Northamptonshire resident since 1987.
He spent 30 years working in local government and in the housing sector.
Alex has been a trustee of snvb since August 2010
Mike has been a trustee of snvb since he moved down from Yorkshire in 2006.
After retiring as an Army Officer and in Senior Positions in HM Customs and Excise he now keeps busy as a Trustee of two charities, one for disabled young adults and one for the blind and visually impaired.
In his village he is a Churchwarden, Parish Councillor and the Neighbourhood Watch Co-ordinator.
Theo joined the Board in 2012. She is now fully retired. In her last employed role she worked in the Brackley Antique Cellar.
She was a Town Councillor in Brackley for nearly nine years and was elected as Mayor for 2011 – 2012. As a result of the support received in that year, it was possible to start a branch of MIND in Brackley which is still going strong.
Her other area of interest has been the provision of Youth facilities such as The Hub Youth Café, run with the help of volunteers, and the progressing of the Skatepark project, patiently anticipated by the young people.
Currently she is a member of the new Brackley Youth Action group, running in conjunction with Youth Groups in Towcester and Silverstone and surrounding villages.
Liz has lived in South Northamptonshire for 40 years. She has had a varied career in retail management, distribution and most recently 10 years in local government.
She has 3 years service as a trustee for Daventry Citizens Advice and currently volunteers with a bereavement charity supporting clients on a one to one basis.
She has also been a parish councillor for 4 years.
Liz feels fortunate that her adult children and their families all live locally which allows plenty of time to enjoy grandchildren and be part of their lives.
She joined snvb in 2021 because its often innovative ideas and the role it plays in the community is impressive and it’s vital that it is funded to continue.
