Hi. I’m Martin, and I’m the first Chair of the Community Association. I’ve lived on Jaguar Lane in The Parks since late 2010, having moved here from London with my partner. I was born and raised in Edinburgh but then lived in London for 26 years, so coming to Bracknell has been quite a change! It’s been great to discover a real sense of community on The Parks and to meet such a diverse group of friendly neighbours that have moved here from near or far. I’ve been involved with the Residents and Community associations since shortly after moving to The Parks (before the two organisations had defined their separate roles and identities) and it’s exciting to see plans that have been discussed for so long finally coming together as the construction of the Community Centre and sports facilities nears completion. It’s an honour and a pleasure to be working with such an enthusiastic team towards opening a facility that we expect will become home to many different community groups and a valued hub for all residents of The Parks.
