Tim Parsons - Chairman of the Council

Tim has lived in Flamstead for over twenty years, with his wife Sarah and their three daughters.

Tim and his family have great affection for the village and whilst it must never be resistant to embracing the modern world, it must work hard to preserve its rich and much loved heritage.
Working to ensure this balance is maintained is why Tim volunteered to sit on the Parish Council and why he continues to be involved in a wide range of village issues.

Caroline Freer - Clerk to the Council


I have been the Clerk since 2006 and during this time I have had the privilege to work with many councillors and what never ceases to amaze me is their commitment to making Flamstead a better place in which to live.

My role is very different; I am responsible for the financial welfare of the Parish, all the meeting related administration, the compliance status of the council, plus assisting with the new pavilion project, designing the playground, liaising with DBC and HCC to mention a few. I have also attended many training sessions and gained a recognised qualification (CiLCA).

Sandra Clark

I wanted to become a Councillor so that I may contribute in a positive way to the village that I love and have been part of for some 40 years and felt that although very involved with Playschool and PTA I had not really contributed in a meaningful way for some years, this is my chance to give something back to the community again.
One of my key goals is to work with everyone – Councillors and Community alike to make the sports pavilion a great facility for the village once more. I am also keen to help with the rural community group to ensure that the essence of our village is maintained for future generations.
I love our village because it has such a great sense of community, not in an over bearing way, just in the sense that you always feel that whatever happens in the ups and downs of life there will support from fellow villagers, even if it’s just saying hello to people you know in the shop, the pub or on the street. There are not many places left in our area that can genuinely say this, and that is what makes Flamstead so special, that and the truly beautiful countryside in which our village sits.
