Councilllor Alan Rowe
Alan Rowe was co-opted to Speldhurst Parish Council in 2018 and elected in May 2019. He is Chair of the Planning Committee, Vice-Chair of the Amenities Committee, and a member of the Finance, Governance and Air Traffic Committees.
Alan grew up in New Zealand before moving overseas in the mid-80’s, eventually settling in Speldhurst with his wife and daughter in 1997.
He travelled to London each day for nearly 25 years where he worked in IT for a leading Fund Management company, latterly commuting between his organisation's various European offices. After deciding to take a break from work and with more free time, Alan was keen to make a positive contribution to the villages in our Parish by becoming a Parish Councillor.
When not volunteering with the Citizen's Advice Bureau, Alan is a rugby enthusiast, and also enjoys spending time in the garden. He can often be seen out and about in Speldhurst on walks with his family.
