John Downe DOI.pdf


My wife and I moved to Hungerford in 2016 for family and lifestyle reasons having previously lived in West Sussex for 40 years where I took a close interest in local affairs and served on the parish council for the last 5 years. We chose to move to Hungerford specifically for the range of attractions and services available within a relatively small town, set amongst a beautiful surrounding countryside. I retired from a career in sales and marketing with a large international information technology company with whom I was originally a sponsored university student. I joined Hungerford Town Council in December 2017 and am a member of the Highways and Transport committee and Jointly Chair the Hungerford 2036 Project team to create a Neighbourhood Plan for our area. My wife and I recently built own home built in the town. I have always been interested in the use of technology and my current interests include electric vehicles, residential energy efficiency and home automation. I enjoy country walks and (not too strenuous) cycling in the surrounding area.
