When it comes to enjoying to serve the local community and having a heart for Woodbridge, you are not going to find better than Geoff Holdcroft and Chris Mapey.
Geoff has been a district councillor for over 11 years, a cabinet member for 8 years and deputy leader for the last 4. He is also a Woodbridge Town Councillor and a former Mayor. Geoff is a Seckford Foundation governor where he has responsibility for supporting young people into apprenticeships. He is also chairman of the Regatta Association which runs the annual Regatta and Riverside Fair and is also a Lion’s Club member.
Chris currently chairs the Market Hill Association and was involved in lobbying the Town Council to bring the weekly market back to Market Hill. He also runs the occasional small producer markets on the square. When Chris isn’t working he is a keen photographer and his looking to offer classes soon in Woodbridge. He has also held a number of leadership roles with local Scout groups and is currently an Assistant Director Commissioner. Chris has also been involved in Rugby coaching.
Both Geoff and Chris are Directors of Choose Woodbridge, a community interest company that promotes Woodbridge. Last year Woodbridge came second in the Great British High Street Awards and both Geoff and Chris were rightly proud of the achievement. Choose Woodbridge clearly has high standing amongst Woodbridge residents.This is proven by the fact that people contact Choose Woodbridge rather than the town or district councils with issues that affect the town. Choose Woodbridge has a philosophy in line with the town motto of Preservation and Progrees and Geoff Holdcroft and Chris Mapey would be the ideal team on the district council to assure that Woodbridge continues to be preserved and continues to progress.
