Jeremy Thompson

East Ward

Thank you to the 621 voters in the East Ward who have given me the opportunity to serve on our Council, I really appreciate your support.

I have lived in Paddock Wood with my wife and family since 1988 when I was appointed Branch Manager of Midland Bank now HSBC.  My two children both attended Paddock Wood Primary School.

On leaving the Bank in 2004 I worked as the Regional Fundraising Co-ordinator for The Royal Star & Garter Homes for 4 years before going on to manage a residential property company’s portfolio for 9 years.  At present I am Chairman of Horizons Kent, the Association for former HSBC employees.

I play an active role in town life and enjoy belonging to Paddock Wood u3a, possibly the largest social group in the town with over 600 members.

At present I am Treasurer of Heritage Paddock Wood; I am passionate about protecting our heritage and our open green spaces. I was a founder member of Friends of the Memorial Playing Field.

I enjoy spending time with my children and four grandchildren, holidays with family and friends, playing golf, classic cars.

I plan to serve on the Council for four years and, in that time, hope we can make a real and positive impact to the lives of our residents.

I want the Town Council to be open and transparent in all that we do, and I trust that residents will feel encouraged to engage with us on Town Council matters that concern them. My email address is on this website.

I do hope that together ‘Working for Paddock Wood Residents’ can make a real difference to our growing Town.
