Paul has lived in Winnersh for over 13 years with his wife Lesley.

He has met so many residents on the doorstep and understands the issues they face.

Many residents will already know Paul as Vice Chair of the Parish Council, and through his monthly weather reports.

Philip Houldsworth, Conservative

Philip was born in Yorkshire, and educated at Ripon Grammar School. After a short spell in the family catering business he decided on catering management as his career,  and joined ICI in Billingham in the catering team.

This led to larger roles heading up catering at Colleges of Education; and then managing the Graduate Centre for the University of Cambridge. He went on to be Employee Services Manager for Ford of Britain based at European HQ Warley in Essex,  and finally became UK CEO of a Reading-based global facilities services company.

Philip moved to Wokingham in 1982 and became involved in local politics, elected to Berkshire County Council in 1985 and again in 1989 where he was Chairman of Environment. After a break from politics he was elected to Wokingham Town Council in 2005 and in 2011 was elected Borough Councillor for Winnersh.

He has served on the Health Overview and Scrutiny committee and as Deputy Executive member for Affordable Housing, serving as Chairman for 4 years of the Affordable Housing Implementation Group (AHIG). He continues to serve on the Tenant and Landlord Improvement Panel.(TLIP).

He was elected Deputy Chairman of the Overview and Scrutiny Management Committee in 2018 and Chairman in 2019.

He has two Daughters, one a sergeant in Surrey Police and the other running a successful online retail business. And – he has an 11-year-old grand-daughter, who is an accomplished stage performer!
