David Rouane, Victoria Haval & Paul Giesberg
David Rouane has lived in Didcot for 30 years and works as a director of a charity which supports people to take positive and practical action on climate change.
He has previously been a healthcare worker and a trustee of the South & Vale Carers’ Centre, and has for several years been on the UK board of an international disability rights charity.
He was a member of Didcot Town Council for 4 years prior to 2015 where he worked with Independent and other independently minded councillors to increase council transparency, publishing his own quarterly newsletter.
Victoria Haval has lived on the Ladygrove estate for 15 years.
As a Qualified Accountant she has used her training and experience to benefit the community.
She has been involved in setting up the Ladygrove Residents’ Association and Stretch Didcot (a community education group).
With a child who attends school locally on the Ladygrove she very much enjoys running the Little Engineers workshops as part of her work as a STEM Ambassador.
She considers herself lucky to have benefited from the children’s centres in Didcot before they were closed and would want to support those seeking to re-establish a community centre with children’s services to address the need in the town.
Paul Giesberg has lived in South Oxfordshire since 2001 and works as a director for a planning and environmental consultancy company helping new development projects to become more sustainable.
He is also a foster carer and treasurer of the Oxfordshire Foster Carers Association a charity that provides support and activities for fostering families throughout the county.
