County Councillor for Fareham Titchfield
I am Geoff Hockley the Conservative County Councillor for the Titchfield Division which covers, Titchfield, Titchfield Common, Catisfield and environs. I am married to Connie who serves as a Borough Councillor for Titchfield and who is looking forward to becoming the Fareham Mayor in May of this year. At that time I will become her Consort which together with our Council responsibilities will keep both of us very busy. We have two super adult “children” both are married and we have a total of five grandchildren. For many years we lived in Ndola, Zambia where I served as General Sales Manager for a major food importer and distributor. We later moved to Nairobi, Kenya where I was employed by the Multi National American Corporation ITT as General Sales and Marketing Manager for Sub Saharan Africa. During our time in Africa I also served as Chairman and Area Chairman of “Round Table”.
We returned to England in 1980. Since then and with our two children, we have lived in Catisfield, Locks Heath and Titchfield. I have a thing about Flat Coat Retrievers; ours is called Chaka, honouring the Zulu King of that name. Prior to retiring I worked for the charity The Trident Trust who place year ten students in suitable work experience situations.
At County, which followed on from the Trident Trust I am Vice Chairman of Regulatory A and B and Vice Chairman of E.T.E. (Economy. Transport and Environment) I also serve on a number of other Committees including Titchfield Haven. Additionally I am a member of The Titchfield Village Trust, The Catisfield Village Association and am very pleased that I am often able to assist my constituents and in this respect I was able to help with the setting up and financing of Titchfield Community Speedwatch which checks motorists speed as the pass by or through our village areas. Motorists exceeding the permitted speed are written to by the Police and cautioned as to their future speeds.
I am passionate about the rights of people and am delighted to be serving the residents of my division.
