        Councillor Rawdon Cowley

        I have lived in Saul since 1994 and am married with two daughters who were born and raised in Saul. My career has ranged from being a Radio and Electronics Officer in the Merchant Navy, running my own business for 21 years and more recently, after a 7 year period as an IT Manager in a large secondary school, I am now the Trust Business Manager for a Multi Academy Trust of 5 schools based in Gloucester. For a number of years I was a Primary School Governor, where I developed a taste for supporting schools, the local community, and education in general. After a number of years “of rest” I am now keen to support and develop our local community for the benefit of all its habitants.

            Councillor Chris Bartlett

            Having moved to Saul village in 2013 with my family, we have fully adopted the good life that is to be enjoyed here. Both my children attend Lakefield School and also regularly enjoy the Saul Playing Field.

            My day life is within Category Mangement for a Supply Chain Management Organisation.

            I maintain the Parish Website and Facebook page and strongly support any project that enhances the community and enjoyment for the residence.

              Councillor Carl Bierer

              I have lived in Saul for 20 Years with my wife and three daughters who are still at school. I work from home which gives me the opportunity to be available during the day to meet contractors and deal with other matters as they occur. I love the village and joined the council to have an input into the community whilst learning more about the area. It is very interesting and has enabled me to meet many local people I would not have otherwise met.

                    Having lived in Whitminster for 23 years I moved to Saul in 2013 with my two chocolate Labradors, Angel and Peppar. I was soon involved in the Events Committee and have thoroughly enjoyed helping organise the last years events with the other members. I then became Parish Clerk in November and have become part of a strong team who, like me, are interested in preserving our community. I love living in Saul and have made some wonderful new friends, humans and dogs alike!
