Geoff Hand - Chairman

Picture of Councillor Geoff Hand When I was interviewed at County Hall in 1974, I was warned that if we moved here we would never want to move anywhere else - a forecast that has proved happily true!

After taking early retirement from the Education Department as a result of having M.E., I enjoyed a new involvement in local activities and I have been a school governor at two Chichester schools including Portfield Community Primary School where I am currently Chair of Governors. I am also an Associate Governor Trainer.

I was a late recruit to parish council work - and was surprised to discover how much Fishbourne Parish Council was doing to maintain and develop the quality of life in the village. Somehow, I soon found myself involved in preparing a bid to the Big Lottery Fund in support of the Fishbourne Community Project and it has been really rewarding to work with so many enthusiastic supporters in the village - a real "community" project. As co-ordinator of the Village Plan 2010-14, I appreciate the commitment that so many of our residents have to Fishbourne and I am particularly grateful to our hard-working task groups.
