Meet the Committee

We all do a bit of everything, but hopefully this helps to show you some of our focus area. As you can see, we are relatively normal. If you’d like to join us, please take a look at the Get Involved page.

Lou Buckley

Chair

I’m Lou, I’m the Chair of Minch Life.  My family moved here in 2006, and have lived in and around the town ever since.

Adrian
Herbert

Treasurer

I’m Adrian, I have been Treasurer of the Minchinhampton Country Fayre since 2011, and I am now the Treasurer for Minch Life.

Karen Colebourn

Secretary & Virtual Open Gardens Coordinator

I have lived on a little farm on the edge of Minchinhampton for more than 16 years – with my husband Phil, Schnauzer Minnie and a herd of Dexters. They all, in different ways, wildly enjoy the very special environment of Minchinhampton.

Anne
Parry

Deputy Secretary & Newsletter Editor

I moved to Minchinhampton seventeen years ago with my husband Nigel. We started Minchinhampton Life with a few others in January 2018 in the hope of linking all the existing groups, clubs, charities and businesses. 

Cherry Land

Social Media

I’m Cherry and we’ve lived in Minch since 2008. Both our girls went to school in Minch and when they left, I set up the Minch Life Facebook page as a way of staying in touch with everyone in the community. 

Leigh Elliott

Virtual Open Gardens Coordinator & Fundraiser

Hello.  I bought my cottage in marvellous Minch in 2013, and since being on the last Fayre committee and now having more time, I am keen to be involved in this worthwhile community enterprise. 

Sheryl Hobbs-Canning

Governance Coordinator

I moved to Minchinhampton in 2019 and since then have enjoyed getting to know the community and discovering all the area has to offer.

Nigel Parry

Fayre Co-ordinator

We moved to Minchinhampton seventeen years ago. In 2018 we started Minchinhampton Life with a view to restoring the Fayre to the local calendar and producing a residents newsletter.

Chloe Turner

Accountancy & Governance

I’m Chloe and I’ve lived in Minchinhampton with my family since 2017, when we moved from Wotton-under-Edge. We love it here: the community and the cows and the huge skies.

I’m looking forward to helping with next year’s Fayre, and putting my finance background to use anywhere it’s needed

Natalie Hill

Committee Member without Portfolio

Hi, I’m Natalie and I look forward to contributing to the wonderful community that makes this town so special
