Cllr Jim Weir was elected representative for Kempston Rural Ward in 2019.
Jim has lived in the Borough since 1998 and has involved himself in local matters by chairing Great Denham Parish Council. He understands challenges in education after chairing the governing body at Great Denham Primary School. He also designed and oversaw the building of a new community hall, of which he is trustee and treasurer, which has become a great meeting place for local residents.
Jim's background is in transport & logistics. He is a keen reader on a wide range of material and likes nearly all sports, but golf and football top the list. He is married to Catherine and has a son and grandson.
Along with the aspirations of all families, Jim wants Great Denham Ward to be a pleasant, safe community that gets a fair crack of the whip and value for residents' Council Tax.
Following his election to the Borough Council, Jim took up positions on the Adult Services, Planning and Rural Affairs Committees.
