Cllr Keith Foreman (Chipstead, Hooley & Woodmansterne)

Keith Foreman was born in Edinburgh. He was educated at Kingston Grammar School, and has lived in Surrey for much of his life. He has lived in the Borough of Reigate and Banstead since 1997, and in Netherne on the Hill since 2004. He is married to Helen, and they have two adult children, Rachel and Stephen.

Keith has worked in financial management throughout his career. Since his election as a Councillor in 2012, he has used his expertise to ensure that the Council budget has provided value for money for council tax payers, and has worked with the executive to set an efficient budget.

He has also served on the Planning, Licensing, Overview and Scrutiny and Surrey Local Committee and has been actively involved in Residents’ associations throughout Chipstead, Woodmansterne, Hooley and Netherne.

Since 2011 he has used his expertise to serve local community organisations, including Reigate and Banstead Voluntary Services, West Central, and the Colman Institute. In addition, he has worked with a number of other charities and local voluntary bodies.

He is an enthusiastic runner and cyclist. He has completed ten marathons, and in 2014 achieved a lifelong ambition by cycling from Lands End to John O Groats. Whilst competing in these challenges, he has raised over £12,000 for various national and local charities.

Keith considers it a real honour to serve the whole community, regardless of political views, and looks forward to continuing to do so.
