|Vice Chairman /
Richard is an architect who has lived and worked in the area for over 30 years, and takes a keen interest in the planning schemes for the borough.
Whilst generally supportive of the development and renewal of Hammersmith, he is particularly concerned at the inappropriate scale of the new development proposals, the absence of enhancement to the existing community, and the failure to provide recreational amenity space, leading to the overloading of our existing parks.
Julia has lived in the Brackenbury area for 19 years. She joined BRA in its early days and has been Committee Secretary since July 2006. Julia has a great breadth of experience in this type of work, having worked primarily in a secretarial role for most of her working life for charitable and academic organisations.
Julia likes living in the Brackenbury area and finds it very convenient for transport. She values living in a London community where she has at least a nodding acquaintance with quite a few people. Joining the committee has helped her get to know them. Julia is also very attached to her friendly street. Her interest in retirement has been textiles – which now takes the form of embroidery.
Judi moved to Brackenbury from Richmond 32 years ago. She has worked for the last 40 years in commercial architectural design and has finally hung up her scale rule to catch on what she hasn’t been doing for the last 40 years – mostly travelling the world. Being a Virgo and the association’s Membership Secretary is a winning combination in keeping track of all those elusive subscriptions.
|Community Safety||Tom Carew Hunt
Tom moved to the area in 2012, after several years in west London and having grown up in Wimbledon. He trained as a Religious Education and Psychology teacher, and remains a Tutor (particularly at University entry level). His interests are Cricket, Real Tennis and bird watching.
Anna has been a Brackenbury resident for 19 years – she has no background in horticulture whatsoever – in fact spent the last 20 years of her working life as PA to a television producer – but is very keen on having as much green in the area as possible.
David has lived in Hammersmith for past 15 years. After a 30-year career with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, largely in African states, Whitehall and at the U.N. he taught A-level History and directed a private Foundation. Now retired, David has particular interest in the history of London and in the character and evolution of its different neighbourhoods and, concern for the quality of local street life, parks and schools. David is also a mentor at Hammersmith Academy and a volunteer with West London Homelessness Concern.
