Mrs Jan Angell

Borough (Great Hollands South)

Jan has had the privilege of representing you as the Conservative Councillor for Great Hollands South on the Borough Council for the last 8 years and before that serving you on the Bracknell Town Council for 16 years.

Jan has lived in Bracknell since 1972 and on Great Hollands for 36 years. She is married and has one son who was educated at our local schools. Before retiring she worked in Reading, her work was in Finance. She was elected the Borough Mayor for 2013/2014. A duty she was very proud to do. It enabled her to represent the Borough and support many charities and organisations.

Jan is interested in Planning and sits on the Planning Committee. She is also on the Health Scrutiny Panel. Recently she has been made Chairman of Shopmobility which is in Princess Square. Shopmobility is a charity which helps people of all ages to keep their independence while shopping by keeping mobile.

Jan has been very successful and battled to achieve more parking within the ward over the last 4 years. An additional 32 places have been created within the ward and a total of 73 spaces throughout Great Hollands.

Her main reason for being a Councillor is being able to help and advise residents. This may not always be achievable, but being able to direct people to the right place and in touch with the right person is a reward in itself.

She hopes, with your vote, to continue playing an active role in our community.
