George Sandy, together with his wife Sally arrived in Taplow in 1971. Their three daughters were educated at a mix of local schools comprising; St Nicolas, Burnham Grammar, and St. Bernard’s.
George held several directorships during his career. Mainly in sales, marketing & retailing. One of the latter included the Fullers chain of cake & patisserie shops, and he also held the position of Head of Retail of London Regional Transport.
George served on Taplow Parish Council during the years 1977–1983 and 2007–2011 where his commercial experience combined with that of fellow councillors has seen great efficiency savings being achieved. Having now served eight years as Ward Councillor for Taplow on South Bucks District Council, and as a past Chairman of Cedar Chase Residents Society, he carries a great deal of local knowledge.
George has always believed strongly in nurturing a sense of local community. For many years he has organised ‘Friends - Cheese, Wine & Ale’ evenings in the Village Hall to which, a mix of old and new residents are invited on a random basis so to enable them to make new friends, and feel they are part of Taplow’s Community.
