Celia Caulcott has lived in Warlingham for 30 years. She is currently a Tandridge District Councillor for Warlingham East, Chelham & Farleigh ward.
Professionally, Celia is a retired national level leader in UK research and innovation systems and senior executive within university and government research funding.
Celia says, “I think my professional experience will help me as a councillor because it gives me a broad understanding of the importance of government, at local and national level, and how different people and organisations interact with this."
She likes to be with friends and family, walk, cycle, garden, cook and go to theatre and opera when she has the chance in her free time.
Celia thinks one of the most important issues in Warlingham is refuse collection, roads, plannning issues and provision of services and is committed to working with local people to find a solution. More widely, Celia will be campaigning hard to develop Council-owned and affordable homes for local people.
She says, “I want to be a councillor to help support my local community and the people of Tandridge.
“I believe Local Lib Dem councilors work hard for their communities, getting things done and listening to local concerns and standing up for residents and the services they need.”
