Cllr Murray Scott
Originally from Northolt in West London, I moved to Northamptonshire in 1977 living first in Wellingborough and then Irchester.
My wife, Denise, and I moved to Burton Latimer in 1984 where we have enjoyed a long and happy relationship with the town. Both our girls attended East lea (now St Marys) Primary School where my wife also worked for several years as a Teaching Assistant. During the late 90s I was both a Parent Governor and also a Parent Helper where I was able to share my experience in IT and Training to help establish and support their first ICT suite during the fledgling years of the school's ICT lessons. For a while, at the turn of the century, I edited 'Focus' magazine and am currently responsible for preparing burial plots in the Garden of Remembrance in the Parish Church of St. Marys Burton Latimer.
My work career has been varied spanning Design, Sales and Information Technology; Training and Project Management. An eclectic mix of skills which I hope will bring an equally eclectic influence to our town. I am very keen to encourage and reinforce community engagement particularly in relation to sustainability and the environment.
Burton Latimer is a growing town with a long history and a bright future, but the responsibility to face the challenges that this growth will inevitably present falls to us all: Young and not so young. We all have a voice and a role to play in ensuring that the needs and wellbeing of our community are met both in the short term and for the benefit of future generations. For this to happen your voice needs to be heard and I look forward helping to facilitate and support this.
