Councillor Paul Curry
Paul Curry joined Speldhurst Parish Council in August 2021. He is Chair of the Parish Council, and the Defibrillators working group, and a member of the Air Traffic, Highways and Planning committees. As Chair, he is also an ex-officio member of all other committees.
Paul is a Software Engineer for a major online publisher, with extensive experience in the consumer connectivity and media industries. He enjoys less-usual travel and experiences; he has toured Chernobyl twice, climbed a wind turbine, trained how to survive at sea, sunk in the Navy's sinking ship simulator and once had his potatoes stolen, causing a minor media event.
Raised in Brighton, Paul moved to Speldhurst in 2015 and is actively seeking to improve the infrastructure in the area by bringing gigabit fibre connectivity to the village and surrounding areas. He enjoys planning and executing projects which have a wide-scale impact for the community, but also getting hands-on, repairing the gates and fences in the local park in his spare time. Paul is a Speedwatch Coordinator in Speldhurst.
