Dave Eggleton – Candidate for Henley Town Council

Dave Eggleton

Born and raised in Henley, lives in the town with his wife and children. Town Councillor for 4 years, Chair of Henley in Bloom.

I have only ever lived in Henley and most of that has been on the Gainsborough Estate. I started the Gainsborough Residents group, with the support of Paula Isaac, five years ago, in that time we have seen many positive changes.

I am exactly what you see. I don’t have an interest in long debates around a table. If I see something that needs to be done, I go out and do it. I have no interest in politics, I am just a people person and I want to help.

Over the past few years, I helped negotiate with Grundon and Biffa, to set up times when commercial plastic rubbish bags are collected to save them from being left out overnight.

It was not my intention to stand for election this year, but everyone that I have spoken to over the past few months has told me we need to get the politics out and the positive action in. I believe I am somebody who can help achieve that with my HRG colleagues.

My aims for the next 4 years are;

  • Promote Henley’s heritage and history.
  • Hold contractors responsible for digging up our streets.
  • Keep the town centre streets clear of commercial waste.
  • Re-open the kiosk at Mill Meadows & the putting green.
  • Lead Henley in Bloom to regional success.
