Cllr Andy Hall – Mayor

South Ward         Email: andy.hall@whitchurchtowncouncil.gov.uk

I was born and raised in our great town of Whitchurch. I have always celebrated our amazing town and worked together with the community to secure its bright future. 

I have formally owned three successful local businesses, employing over thirty staff. I had the honour of holding the office of Chair of Whitchurch Chamber of Trade back in the 2000’s. Over the years I have been an active and willing volunteer for a wide range of community events such as Whitchurch Radio. I currently work for Hereford, Ludlow & North Shropshire College as a tutor. I deliver the Advance Course to 16–19-year-olds, using my Youth and Community degree and teaching qualifications to benefit young people in the north of the county.

I joined Whitchurch Town Council (WTC) to help to raise the voice of young people and promote community well-being. As the Chair of the Town Council, I endeavour to encourage openness and transparency in Local Government.

Having lived in Wales, Malta, Thailand and Poland over the years, Gregory returned to Whitchurch amid the Covid 19 pandemic with the goal of seeking a career within the United Kingdom. Gregory Ebbs has a BSc in International Relations, and a Msc from the University of Malta in Strategic Management and Public Policy.
 
Gregory first moved to Whitchurch at the age of 16 to pursue his A level studies at Sir John Talbots College. Whilst at college, Gregory was an active participant in local youth groups including the Whitchurch Youth Council at the Beechtree Community Centre and the local Air Cadet Squadron.
 
As one of the youngest councillors in the county, Gregory wants to use his professional and educational experience to improve the lives of the local people in the community, create more jobs and activities for the youth of Whitchurch and increase the presence of the Police in the local community.

Cllr Rose Hall (Deputy Mayor)

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 Angie Hotchkiss

South Ward          Email: angie.hotchkiss@whitchurchtowncouncil.gov.uk

Having worked for Shropshire Council for almost 30 years, mostly in a special educational needs setting, I retired in 2016.  This means that I have time to do all the things I love doing: walking, reading, socialising and gardening.  I also thoroughly enjoy regular volunteering work which I feel is helping to improve our lovely town.

 There are lot of positive things happening in Whitchurch and I am pleased to be part of Whitchurch Town Council as this will enable me to help drive these exciting initiatives forward.

 Although I have a lot to learn I am passionate about our community, I love meeting people and working with others, and I am looking forward to representing the interests of our town and it’s residents.

Cllr Jayne De-Wyrall

West Ward          Email: jayne.de-wyrall@whitchurchtowncouncil.gov.uk

I am delighted to have become a member of Whitchurch Town Council! I love living in Whitchurch, having been here for for 30 years, and have brought up two children here. Along with an amazing group of like-minded locals I volunteer tirelessly with the We are Whitchurch group to help make our town a cleaner, safer and more beautiful place for all our townsfolk and their children.

I am totally committed to helping our Town Council spend our hard earned Council Tax wisely for the benefit of us all, and I am available to listen to your suggestions and issues which I will do my utmost to attend to with common sense and enthusiasm.

I trained to be a Registered General Nurse in 1983, and worked for 32 years firstly as a Staff Nurse, then Ward Sister, and eventually a Specialist Nurse. Having retired once I have returned to the NHS as a part time Pharmacy Dispenser, which I absolutely love.
