Andy Newell - Andy has fought publicly for many years for the restoration of Herne Bay's pier. He has many memories of the old pier and passionately believes it should be restored to its former glory as a benefit not only to the people of Herne Bay but also for the rest of the country. Andy is married to Jackie and has two daughters: Nicola 19 and Frances 17; and a son Todd 21. He works in the construction industry.
Andrea Leach - Deputy Chairman - Andrea, 44, is married to Kim and has 2 sons Alex and Max. Born in Canterbury he has lived all his life locally and moved to Herne Bay over 3 years ago. Andrea is passionate about improving and developing the town. He is bilingual Italian and has extensive business contacts both locally and in London. Andrea has over 20 years extensive European B2B experience with a number of leading global FMCG companies, including the sports apparel and leisure sector. As Capital Appeals Manager for a local children's charity he helped to raise £6.5m to build and open South London's first residential children's hospice. He has worked with Britain's oldest brewer Shepherd Neamne as an Export Consultant for over five years.
David Shepherd - David Shepherd moved to Herne Bay 6 years ago and immediately threw himself into the fabric of the town. He was a volunteer then in-kind sponsor of the Herne Bay Festival organising much of the music programme and creating the Herne Bay Rocks music competition that has become a very popular part of the festival programme. He is also spearheading the campaign against the closure of Herne Bay’s Royal Mail delivery office, starting the petition as well as organising and leading the town’s first ever march. Although David has been involved in local politics in the past he is strictly non-partisan on matters that affect the town’s future and feels that the people of Herne Bay are fundamental to the success of any community project, always encouraging people to get involved in any way they can. David’s background is in the music industry and eventing and he now works in the centre of Town for Oyster Mortgage Services.
