Cllr John Sinnot – Mayor 

South Ward          Email: john.sinnott@whitchurchtowncouncil.gov.uk

I was born and brought up on the Wirral and after leaving school joined an accountancy firm in Liverpool to train as a Charted Accountant.  I decided that it was not what I wanted to do and joined the Army.  On leaving the Army after almost 27 years I became a Local Government Officer and settled in Shropshire, first in Telford and then some 25 years ago in Edgeley.   I have been married to Jacqueline for 53 years and we have two children, one of each and three grandchildren.  I was persuaded to join Whitchurch Town Council some eight years ago and will continue to work hard for the Town.

Hello! My name is Paul Busby. I’ve lived a good 34 years in Whitchurch, with a work focus on Marketing, Sales and Hospitality. Most of you will know me from working around town, or teaching self-defence classes for both adults and children.

Cllr Rose Hall

West Ward           Email: rose.hall@whitchurchtowncouncil.gov.uk

I was born in Whitchurch and have lived and worked in and around our beautiful town. I have been lucky enough to be involved with our local Am Dram Society for 40 years and have enjoyed getting to know people through meeting members & audience’s. I have seen a lot of changes in the Town good and bad. I joined the We are Whitchurch group to help with community projects and this has restored my faith in people and have loved seeing what can be achieved with time and teamwork. I’m looking forward to helping bring Whitchurch back on the map as a busy & thriving town.

Cllr Robert Hewson

North Ward          Email: robert.hewson@whitchurchtowncouncil.gov.uk

I moved to Whitchurch from Nantwich in 1984 and it is here where I met my late wife, Margaret. Together we have 3 children and 6 Grandchildren who have all attended our fantastic local schools and played for the local sports teams. My wife and I for many years participated in organising fundraising events in our great town for many of the local and some national charities. With the help of the very generous and supportive people of this town we were able to raise over £160,000 for the charities. I joined the local council in 2005 and thoroughly enjoyed my time serving the people of Whitchurch. In 2013 I was honoured to be elected as the towns mayor – something I am very proud and grateful for. I also spent a few years on the district council representing our town. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my children, grandchildren and watching football. I am overjoyed to be back on the town council torepresent the Whitchurch people who have given me so much.
