I came to Holway Farm, Sandford Orcas in 1952 and subsequently moved to Poyntington in 1972 and have been here ever since.

Apart from 15 years in Dundee I have always lived in a village and enjoyed the pleasures that go with them. I have been a player in the Sandford Orcas Billiard League for over 50 years. Whilst in Sandford Orcas I was secretary of the Village Hall and ran a youth club. I also helped run a youth club in Poyntington, was a parish councillor, and chaired the Village Hall Committee. I also ran a youth club in Marshfield in Wilts whilst managing a farm there, so I have made myself a general nuisance in most villages. My aim as Chairman of the Yeohead & Castleton Parish Council is to work towards peace and harmony and the general well-being of the parishes represented.

I am a retired Civil Engineer married with two sons, we moved from Bridge near Canterbury to Poyntington in 2008 to be nearer to our family. I worked in Kent for 35 years with Consultants and the County Council on mainly highway improvement and maintenance schemes, both designing them in the office and supervising their construction on site.

I now enjoy gardening, wood turning, playing squash, table tennis and walking and also enjoy visiting National Trust properties.

Hello, my name is Jason Perryman and I’ve lived in the local area most of my life. I moved to Oborne in 1993 with my wife Karen who is currently the secretary of the village hall. We have two children and we all enjoy being a part of the lovely village community which makes Oborne so special.

I have a small building business and agricultural experience/ qualifications. Being one of the younger Councillors I still play for Sherborne Rugby Club on a regular basis. I also play the trombone in a big band.

I hope to use my experience and skills to benefit the Parish.

My name is Greg Kellaway and I have been farming since the 1970's. I am currently a tenant of a Dorset County Council Farm of 210 acres in Oborne. I am married with two children. I am the tenant farmers association representative on behalf of the council tenants. My interests tend to be totally on my work as a dairy farmer milking 120 Holstein Friesian cows, the farm is currently under going a diversification of a maize maze and a caravan certificated location. When time allows I like to play rugby and cricket but unfortunately my age and depreciated body does not allow me to play to my full potential. I have recently been elected to join the parish council.
