Tom Steele

Our Previous Conservative Councillor for Kentwood Ward

Tom has lived locally in Kentwood for 28 years and recently stepped down as a Councillor. Prior to Tom's departure, he served as a Kentwood Councillor between 2007 and 2011, where he was amongst the top Councillors for the number of enquiries made on behalf of residents, before stepping down to recuperate after an operation. However, soon back on his feet, he has continued to be an active member of the local community. As well as being a Governor of Norcot Early Years Centre, Tom sits on the advisory board to Norcot Community Centre, and is a trustee of The Forgotten British Gurkha charity. Tom was re-elected in 2015 and served until 2018 before stepping down due to health and family reasons. Much loved by his community, Tom will be sorely missed.

Tom is a regular volunteer for Go Local On A Better Environment (Globe), and is also a volunteer litter picker on Oxford Road. He has also worked with Neighbourhood Action Groups to train PCSOs in dealing with residents after burglaries.
