The Town Council welcomed Dave Poulter as its newest councillor at its June meeting. Dave was co-opted by fellow councillors for his knowledge and experience across many sectors including British Rail, the NHS, his own Project Management consultancy, Local Authorities, Housing Associations & Developers.
‘I believe that my working life has provided me with a broad range of skills and experience that would be of benefit to the Council and I welcome the opportunity to give something back to the community.
I will bring with me a background in consultation and negotiation, commercial, financial, design and risk management, which I hope will add to the experience of existing councillors. I moved to Diss two years ago with my wife, am now retired, and ready to give what I can to the Diss community.’
The role of Town Councillor is voluntary, and we are seeking new councillors to fill the six remaining vacancies. If you’re passionate about the town, want to do your bit for your community & meet the eligibility criteria, please visit www.diss.gov.uk/roleofacouncillor to find out more.
