Sune Nightingale

Sune Nightingale

Chair

I live in Capton with my wife and 3 children. I was born in Denmark but moved to Capton when I was 5. Read more ...

My aim as a Parish Councillor is to try to do Good for our community. We have some great people on the team and, like me, they volunteer their time for no personal benefit, other than knowing that they are trying to do something helpful. In my free time I like to go surfing and love to watch the sun rise whilst bobbing about at sea.

Richard Bond

Vice-Chair

The Bond family arrived in the village in 1957 and I was at Dittisham Primary School the year it closed in 1968. Read more ...

I joined the parish council as there was a shortage of volunteers due to the aging population and was also interested in how local government worked. I think I have explored all the nooks and crannies of the parish as a child and have now rediscovered them as a Parish Councillor over the last 5 years.

Councillor

I live in Dittisham with my husband. We moved here in September 2019 and have been wholeheartedly welcomed by a community that really cares about it’s purpose, the environment and the welfare of the people who make it such a special place. Newly Co-opted I have much to learn. I am ready to serve to the best of my ability and look forward to discovering where my knowledge and interests can be best put to work. I am interested in people and helping them to find out how best they can be involved in their community. I look forward to working with the team and encouraging everybody to feel that Dittisham is the happiest place to be for everyone.
