Councillor Ken Hodgson
I was born in an east London suburb and moved to Northampton in 1985. I have lived in East Hunsbury for 20 years and have no plans to move on, and I have many friends and acquaintances in this local area.
I am by apprenticeship, then higher education, an electronics and communications engineer. Later in life I became Chairman of a number of European companies with associated businesses.
I am now retired from paid work but do carry out other various volunteer roles. I am, when time permits, a regular at the local Collingtree park gym and also a keen traveller. As an East Hunsbury Flood Warden I help to stabilise our local flood risk, I am also a member of Danes Camp Medical Centre Patient Participation Group striving to make our Doctors' Surgery the best in the area. As somebody who volunteers a lot locally, I was pleased to be able to fill a casual vacancy and become a parish councillor for East Hunsbury.
Cllr Hodgson was co-opted to the Parish Council in June 2022.
