Patrick Hogan is a District Councillor for Beaconsfield West and a Beaconsfield Town Councillor being currently Deputy Mayor. "My wife Jacqui and I have lived in Beaconsfield for 25 years. As an architect l am concerned about our environment and the enhancement of the Town, whilst recognising that we face unprecedented pressures for the future in meeting housing and infrastructure needs. As well as having chaired the Hampden Hill Society, a residents' group, which seeks to preserve that Conservation Area and public open space, I spent seven years on the Conservation Areas Advisory Committee to the London Borough of Harrow.  As well as chairing the Town Planning Committee, I am chairing the management committee of the Holtspur Local Nature Reserve, and am a member of the Community Safety Committee. At District I am a member of Resources, Audit and Licensing. Early retired from practice and commerce I am working for and with the community with the aim of achieving the best outcomes".

I enjoy living in Beaconsfield, we share a beautiful town with a great heritage and quality of life. I am standing for the town council to help to preserve our environment and make Beaconsfield an even better place to live. I have a track record as a councillor in Wandsworth where I was responsible for introducing doorstep recycling, providing outstanding Social Services for vulnerable local people and delivering excellent value for money.

Roy Foster

I’ve lived in Beaconsfield Central Ward for 28 years. My wife and I have been married for 47 years. Our two children attended local schools. I work as a computer consultant. In my spare time I enjoy running and reading. Like many residents, I’ve become increasingly concerned about traffic, congestion, parking and local services.  The re-development of Wilton Park and the many new dwellings it will bring will mean fresh challenges for Beaconsfield. There will be added demands on local services like GP’s, schools, roads.  Beaconsfield is a good place to live & I’ll work to keep it that way.

Alastair Pike

Alastair Pike moved to Beaconsfield in 1989 and has run a retail business in the Old Town since 1993. Some years ago he warned against the long term impact of increasing traffic movement and is keen to see the introduction of a vehicle weight limit in London End.

Rita Bhalla

My career has encompassed banking, sales, insurance and fundraising, and the fact that I have dealt with people from all walks of life I feel would help me with the challenges I face as a councillor. I moved from Harrow to Buckinghamshire 12 years ago and into Beaconsfield 8 years ago. I am married with 2 sons who have spent their formidable years in Beaconsfield having both been through the excellent Grammar School system of Education that Buckinghamshire provides.

I will make a difference and be involved in shaping the future of the local community & want to represent the views of local people and ensure that community interests are taken into account. One of my main concerns is to improve services for the Elderly members of our community. I am an active volunteer for ‘Save the Children’ , ‘The Sadhu Vaswani Group - Feeding the Homeless’ and most recently worked within Buckinghamshire and volunteered for my Bank collecting food donations from around the county for the victims of the Nepal Earthquake which I then delivered to Stevenage, Hertfordshire.

I believe Beaconsfield Old Town has a character and a charm that is worth preserving, whilst meeting the needs of the community and business. 

I have lived in Beaconsfield for nearly twenty years. For the last eight years I have run my web consultancy firm from the Old Town and worked with a number of local businesses during that time. Although I have seen the town change, it has remained a pleasant place to live and work. I will strive to serve the town to the best of my ability whilst keeping an open and informed mind on all matters.
