People

Cllr Tim Archer (Chipstead, Kingswood & Woodmansterne)

I grew up in Chipstead and moved back here with my young family after living in London for a number of years. My wider family still live locally and I’m proud to be able to represent the area that I grew up in and call home.

Cllr Simon Parnall (Chipstead, Kingswood & Woodmansterne)

I have lived in the Borough for over twenty-five years, the last seventeen as a Kingswood resident. I was chairman of the Kingswood Residents’ Association before joining the Council. I have a real passion for our communities, doing all I can to ensure we deliver better local government.

Shysta Manzoor (Earlswood & Whitebushes)

Shysta Manzoor lives and grew up in Redhill, and is passionate about community improvement, youth development, improving mental health and equality and diversity. Locally she has helped set up community projects and residents’ groups.

Chris Reynolds (Earlswood & Whitebushes)

Having lived and worked in Redhill for so many years, I am keen to do more for the community using my past experience as a councillor and my interest in environmental issues.  If local residents put their trust in me I will work hard on behalf of the whole community. 

Cllr Sam Walsh (Banstead Village)

I have represented the Village since 2006 and sit on the Borough Planning Committee to ensure your views are heard and concerns are openly dealt with.  I intend to continue in this role to use my professional knowledge, skills and experience for the benefit of all residents of the Village.

Tim Peniston-Bird (Meadvale & St John's)

I am passionate about helping my local community take back control of local issues–by working together, we can make Meadvale and St John’s an even better place to live–contact me if you have ideas or would like to get involved.

Cllr Barbara Thomson (Earlswood & Whitebushes)

I have lived in Whitebushes for 17 years, 11 as your councillor. I care about our community and have worked hard to deliver facilities for everyone, such as a new post office and play areas. If re-elected, I will work hard to keep our community a safe and great place. 

Lindy Murray (Meadvale & St John's)

I moved here over 30 years ago, training with British Airways at Gatwick. Having worked with local fundraising committees and the Reigate Action Group to fund the playground in Priory Park, it is rewarding to see the results we have all put in and I would like to do more.
