Parish Councillor Tony Gorham is a member of the Conservative Party.
I was born in East London, and after full time education I joined a large international company. A far cry from my second career that started in 1980. I was introduced to the plight of people who had lifelong physical and mental impairments.
I volunteered in a day centre in Guildford and in 1987 became part of Surrey Social Care taking a full time role working within the local community, enabling people to be more independent, and access all the opportunities that most take for granted.
I have continued working towards helping people have better lifestyles. My wife Helen and I moved to Ash Vale in 1989. We are part of the Ash and Ash Vale community, involved in the village and it’s people, a diverse population enriching our lives.
Volunteering is high on the agenda and I will be looking to develop more opportunities for more people to get involved to support our village.
