Bourton-on-the-Water Parish Council
Cllr John Hovard
My name is Ernest John Hovard, but I prefer to be called John. I was born in Bourton on the Water in 1951, the youngest of 5 children. I attended Bourton Primary School and later Bourton Vale School.
I joined Gloucestershire County Council in 1968 and remained in their employ for 44 years.
I'm married with 2 children, Michael and Daniel, and enjoy reading, the gym and socialising.
I still live in Bourton and have a great regard for our village, which is why I decided to apply to join the Parish Council, hoping to make a difference and protect what we have and enjoy.
I chair the Open Spaces Committee and I also sit on three other committees: Finance & General Purposes, Village Maintenance & Highways and Community Centre.
