Councillor Helen Cumberpatch

I have lived in Trowell since 1991. My two children attended Trowell C of E School where I was lucky enough to help out in the classroom, go on trips and help with “Friends of Trowell” fund raising events. I have worked at Trowell pre-school, and ran the local Beaver Scout group for a number of years. I have also run stalls at the Trowell Christmas events. Although I now work full time, I want to be involved in the local issues which may affect the future of the village.

Councillor Si Frost

I am a dedicated advocate for the village of Trowell, committed to serving its residents and working tirelessly on their behalf. With a genuine passion for community development, and will represent the needs and interest of Trowell and its residents. I will bring a fresh perspective to Trowell, with a sincere appreciation for the Village’s unique qualities and the potential it holds. Accessibility and open communication are at the forefront in my approach. I am available to listen, address concerns and discuss ideas. I understand the importance of staying connected with the community, ensuring that every resident has a voice and an opportunity to be heard.


Councillor Jan Goold

I have lived in the area for over forty five years. I think we have a great community and I have never had the desire to move elsewhere. Before becoming a Councillor, I worked in optical business, both in the corporate field and seven years running a practice of my own. I have considerable experience in management, organisational skills and the implementation of conflict resolution. I believe my experience in such matters have given me a sound foundation for my work in public service. I am now in my ninth year as a Councillor and have served in a number of senior roles as well as being a very proactive worker within the local community. I have been Chair of Community Safety, vice chair of Housing (BBC)  Chair of HR and Mayor of Stapleford. In my space time I like to travel, tend my allotment, fund raise for my charity (a local hospice). Most importantly I love spending time with my extended family and friends.

Councillor Thomas Hall

I have lived in Trowell nearly my whole life and spent seven happy years attending Trowell C of E Primary School. Also, I continued to stay in the local area while studying a Master’s degree in Mathematics at the University of Nottingham. I decided to join the Council because I want to help keep Trowell the great place it is and contribute towards the future of our great village. I want to bring a young perspective to the important decisions and issues that the Council are responsible for in out community.

Councillor Debbie Hopwood

I have lived in Trowell since 1992. My two sons were born in Trowell and attended Albany

Infants and Junior Schools. I enjoy walking in the local area and take an interest in local wildlife and environmental issues. After many years working in IT, mostly at Rolls-Royce in Derby, I have taken early retirement and am now enjoying more free time. This has allowed me to become a councillor and be more involved in local issues.

Councillor Cynth McGann

I joined the Parish Council in 2006. I have two children and three grandchildren. Before having a family, I worked in many roles from office to shops.  I then trained as an auxiliary nurse, but had to give a work due to my disabilities. I uses a wheelchair or electric scooter to get around so appreciate some of the problems associated with access and disabilities, so I advise the council on accessibility.
