Ian Burgess

Responsibilities – Speed and Traffic Monitoring  / Lead, Planning Application Group

Barry Clift – 

I have lived in Haversham for over 25 years and over that time have been involved in most of the communities activities, Fete, Mayday, Fireworks, concerts etc. I have 2 grown up children who have now left the village and 1 granddaughter who is non-verbal and has learning difficulties. I am semi-retired and help run a small cake-decorating shop in Newport Pagnell with my wife Chris. I like playing badminton and am member of a pub quiz team.

Responsibilities – Parish Council Representative on Haversham Social and Community Centre Committee / Website.


Jemma English –

I am a mum of two young children who has lived in Haversham since 2009. I moved to the parish from Newport Pagnell where I grew up as a child. I am a very keen gardener who trained in the Horticultural field at college. Before having my family I had a career in managing and running some of our local garden centres. I now help run our family business. As a family we love being outdoors at any given opportunity and can often be found on our local allotment plot, working away in our garden, out enjoying the beautiful local area on walks or bike rides or going away on camping holidays.
Responsibilities – Parish Council Representative for Local Allotments


Carol Langham – 

I have lived in Haversham since January 1985, and was nine years in Newport Pagnell prior to that. While my children were growing up I was involved in village activities such as the local fete, social centre (I was on the committee for a time), the Road Safety Action Group, the village show – and both children attended the youth club. For the last 18 years I have been employed as an Editor for an in-house publication, the last three years for four days a week rather than full time. I enjoy walking with my dog on the footpaths around Haversham and the surrounding area, and feel incredibly lucky to live in such superb countryside. I have been a Parish Councillor since August 2016.

Responsibilities – Representative on MK Unitary Authority / Parishes Forum

Philip Turnbull – 

A retired professional statistician who has lived in Milton Keynes for 35 years, the last 3 of which have been in Haversham. An active volunteer in the community; as Deputy Chair of Swan Credit Union; and a member of the Milton Keynes Labour Party.  In my leisure time I am an active grandparent, and like walking, reading and travel

Responsibilities – Footpaths and rights of way

Pam Williams

Pam Williams lives in Mill Road, between Old Haversham and Little Linford and has lived in the Parish since 2007.  She moved to Haversham from Essex, believing this was an area to which she had no connection; she was amazed to discover that her late aunt and uncle had lived in Wolverton Road and their ashes are buried in St Mary’s churchyard!

Now officially retired following a career in print and publishing, Pam is busier than ever as the Chair of Trustees for local homeless charity The Bus Shelter MK.  She joined Haversham cum Little Linford Parish Council in September 2016 and was recently elected as Chair in May 2019 following a stint as Vice-Chair.

Responsibilities – Chair / Representative on MK Association of Local Councils / Representative on Buckinghamshire Association of Local Councils / Representative ad-hoc MK Rural Parishes Liaison Group / Lead, Neighbourhood Planning Group
