Liz Grugeon

Vice-Chair

I was born in Reading and have lived here all my life. My grandmother lived in Cressingham Road, so I have a connection to the area. I worked for over twenty years in the legal department of Berkshire County Council and was an active member of Nalgo, now UNISON.

I was an Employment Tribunal Member for twenty years - the employee side, of course, and am now happily retired.

Derek Chapman

Trustee

I'm a resident of Whitley Wood: been here about 15 years. I've got a real background in social/community work - I'm on the board of the Credit Union and formerly a trustee at the WW community centre & at Launchpad, among other things. I've been a member of the Trustees here for two years and Treasurer since last year. 

My goal is to try and eliminate the stigma that Whitley, unfortunately, gained and make the area a place that people are proud to live in.
