Hugo has lived in rural Cherwell with his family since 2004. Active in the community, Hugo has served as a District Councillor since 2016, is a School Governor, Charity Director and local Poppy Appeal Organiser for the Royal British Legion. His background in the finance sector means Hugo is keen to ensure the Council pursues sound finance and value for money remembering that every penny the Council spends is raised from local residents and businesses. As the District expands, he believes it is vital that the rural voice and needs of our communities continue to be heard from challenging inappropriate development to working closely with Parish Councils on local priorities.
