Richard Germany

Chairman

I have lived in Coltishall for thirty years. I owned Horstead Garage for over 20 years until I sold it last year and since then have retired to do more work on Church farm, Great Hautbois Road, which I own. I also ran a successful pub called the Diplomat at Badersfield (the old RAF Coltishall site).

Michael Spinks

Parish Councillor

I have lived in Great Hautbois all my life. I have been on the Parish Council for over 40 years, and am also a trustee of the Village Hall and Recreation Grounds charity (CAST). I am very keen to protect green spaces and the environment in the Parish. In addition to being a member of the Commons Trust, I maintained Hautbois Common, as my father did before me, from 1969 until 2014.  I am one of the tree wardens for Coltishall.

I moved to Coltishall in 1985 and have enjoyed living here ever since. I played cricket for the village for nearly two decades as well as being a governor at Coltishall Primary School for 10 years and have recently joined the Speedwatch team. Coltishall is a great place to live and raise a family and I want to help preserve and improve on all that makes it unique.

Parish Councillor

I have lived in Coltishall most of my life.  For the past 32 years  I have worked at Coltishall Primary School as a Midday Supervisor, Caretaker and School Governor, now retired.  I am currently the Chair of Coltishall Village Hall & Recreation Ground (aka CAST)

I have lived in Coltishall and Horstead for over thirty years. I love the village and note the changes since I first arrived here. 

I have two horses, and used to ride through the village regularly, unfortunately I do not ride my own out at the moment as one is retired and the other a bit to spooky to ride out, but I do ride out on a friends horse, so I still get to enjoy the countryside around us. I worked at Aviva for 32 years until I was made redundant in 2012, I have done various jobs since then and am now semi retired.

I would like to keep the village the nice, safe, pretty place that I have enjoyed for so many years, for the future generations.

I have lived in Coltishall for nine years - a relative newcomer I know, but I grew up in Swanton Abbott and spent much of my adult life living in Norwich.  I have a partner and two children; one at Coltishall Primary and one at Broadland High.  I am a Deputy Sister at Cromer Dialysis Unit, a nine stationed nurse-led facility at Cromer Hospital, where I work three shifts a week.  I am the treasurer and a trustee for Coltishall and Horstead Preschool and have recently become a director of CAST, the better to continue my role as self-appointed good fairy of the village hall.  Hobbies and interests include my allotment, Zumba, making wine and caravanning.

Andrew Sands Moore

Parish Councillor

I have recently moved to Coltishall with my wife and two children which attend the local schools. Coltishall has aways been one of our favourite places to visit and we are happy to now call this fantastic village our home. I have lived across Norfolk my entire life and have always had a passion for its History and character. I have a background in both conservation and construction with specialty in roofing,  myself and my partner run a roofing business based here in Coltishall. 

With my family life here in Coltishall I have a vested interested in seeing the village prosper if in any way I can help in that process though my input and help, it would be time well spent.
