Cllr. Amanda Durley
Amanda is married, a mother of two and a Teacher. Previously she has worked as a Communications Officer for the Police.
Amanda’s family has been involved with Bushy Leaze Child and Families Centre, the last such resource in East Hampshire, so is aware of its need for support as they continue their struggle for funding.
Amanda was elected to Alton Town Council last September and was on the Planning Committee. She would be honoured to be re-elected so that she can fight for more truly “affordable housing” and support our Town Centre.
Amanda knows that Alton people are fed up with having decisions made about their town by Councillors who do not know the area.
Amanda says “I am proud to live in a community that works together to protect our assets and if re-elected I will listen and continue to work hard on your behalf.
Cllr. Sharon Cullen
Sharon Cullen has lived in Alton for over ten years. She first fell in love with Alton when she visited the town in 2000 as a member of the English Civil War Society, to take part in the Battle of Alton which was part of the town's millennium celebrations. She was delighted to be offered the opportunity to move to Alton when she was transferred to Swanwick Air Traffic Control Centre in 2007.
After retiring Sharon was elected as Town Councillor for Westbrooke Ward in 2015.
During her time as Councillor Sharon has served on the Open Spaces and Community Committees and has also served as chair of the Allotments Sub-Committee. These reflect Sharon’s interests in green issues, attracting tourism and investment to the town. She has taken part in Green Alliance events.
