BoB Symons

Chairman, Avon Local Councils’ Association (ALCA)

First elected to Pucklechurch Parish Council in 2007 becoming chairman in 2011 which has continued to date.

Through developing myself and the role I have become the Chairman of the South Gloucestershire Area Group of Avon Local Council Association, Chairman of The Avon Local Council Association whose membership contains BaNES and North Somerset along with representation for Bristol. In this role I am part of the South West Association of Local Councils.

I am vice chair of my local South Gloucestershire Community Engagement Group and member of the Town and Parish Forum.

Continuing my community responsibility I am Chair of Governors for my local school, and am trained and work as a Community First Responder.

I did take early retirement and am clearly suffering for that now!
