Meet your local council members

Bill Ronald -  Chairman - Aston roads

Jacky and I moved to Aston 10 years ago where we discovered and refurbished our current home in the village.

Like many in the area we frequently count our blessings on the basis of our delightful rural environment.

My early career was in Chocolate at Mars Slough. More recently I have been a portfolio Non Executive Director for a variety of businesses and am a mentor with the FTSE Mentoring Foundation.

As a keen walker I roam our Parish marvelling at the scenery and cursing the litter louts.

As a frequent user of the lanes I am keen to see them appropriately maintained for cyclists and car drivers alike. As a councillor I will push to deliver this.

Franky Cookson - Website, Transparency Code and GDPR

Since 2000, I have lived in a farm cottage in Middle Culham, at the ‘East End’ of Remenham. My background is branding and marketing - and I run a marketing consultancy, specialising in environmental initiatives.   I love the views from my cottage, but worry about the A4130, with its traffic noise, speed and pollution, as well as litter thrown from vehicle windows.  I’m actively involved in our collective efforts to address these problems.  My main council task is to keep our website up to date, interesting – and compliant.  We aim to keep you informed on news and events, including regular police notices and road traffic updates.  I’m keen to keep the site full of colourful images of local events, so please send me your photos, as well as anything else that might add interest (parties, sports events, meetings, local history….).  Any information you send will be treated with the discretion demanded by the GDPR guidelines.  

Nigel Williams

I have lived in Horseshoe Cottages, Remenham Hill for around 15 years now. Before that I was living and working in Dubai for many years, but always owned a house in Wargrave. I grew up in Maidenhead and my late wife in Wargrave and Shiplake, so I know the area well.

Until recently I was a freelance broadcast engineer, working on TV projects in UK and abroad.

In the last few years I have witnessed the long overdue restoration of Park Place Estate and more recently the fields behind my house being transformed into a private polo facility for the Park Place Polo team.

Polly Hogan - Vice Chairperson

I have lived in Aston since 2010, I love our village and the surrounding area, I feel very lucky and privileged to live here and would like to play my part in keeping and improving the unique beauty of our parish.  I have a particular interest in the upkeep of the footpaths and the lanes. I walk locally every day and regularly drive and cycle throughout the area. Our community matters to me a great deal and I look forward to bringing a common sense approach to help address any concerns from within our neighbourhood.

Paul Binney

I was born and raised in Remenham, living in the Old School House adjacent to the Village Hall until my early twenties. I spent a decade working in London and Sydney before returning to Henley with my now wife, Katy, in 2015. We soon moved to Remenham Hill and have two young daughters, Zoe and Mya. Katy is a regular in the Remenham Thespians amateur dramatics group and the children adore the local community and countryside.

I work for Visa, in corporate communications and sponsorship. 

Paul Sermon - Clerk


We have lived in the Parish since 2000, but my Remenham roots go back to Henry Surman. He was a Berkshire agricultural worker, who married Emma Eagleton of Assendon/Remenham in 1842. For a period the family lived in a cottage linked to Remenham Farm. I remain research active in a London University, but I also scull along the perimeter of the parish at least 3 times a week.

Peter Grace

I have lived in Remenham Hill since 2000. I was born in Kiln Green, so have been a local all my life. I have been on the Parish Council before, but bowed out due to a family issue, but am now back on it. Living at the top of Remenham Hill I am involved on the Parish Council with Planning & Traffic  (especially speed). . Last time I was on the Council I was actively involved within the village hall, community events & the help & upkeep of the village itself, thus as I work locally as an Estate Manager for a privately owned estate.


Emma Abbott

I was born and raised in South Manchester but have lived in WBC for 29 years moving to the
parish in 2007.
As a resident I am concerned with the amount of traffic and the pollution it causes along the
Wargrave Road and up White Hill and surrounding area.
I also take a keen interest in planning and the local environment.
I run a small property company and book keep for one of our local bakeries.
I am a keen boater and love living in Remenham with its fantastic annual riverside event.
You will find me out on the river throughout the summer.
