An interview with: Mike Arnold

I have lived in Daventry for 33 years, after moving from Surrey due to a change in job role. It was the location, the surrounding greenery and the natural beauty of the area that appealed to me and my wife. The Town is open and quaint, and alongside the rural feel we knew this would be the perfect family home.

I have been a Town Councillor for around 10 years. The decision to join the Council came about because I wanted to give back to the community. This town is my home and I would like to help and make a difference to the people that live in Daventry.

Moving towards 'unitary' means that there will be changes to the Town in the future. It is important that the Town Council continues to be a figurehead with that change; a reliable body that its residents can trust. By looking into the future, we can ensure that the Town continues to thrive, for this generation and generations to come.

DTC focuses on the quality of life at a local level and by enhancing this we encourage residents to become more involved with how the Town is governed, along with its development.

In my spare time, I enjoy reading any historical fact and fiction book I can get my hands on, my interest in history also influenced my choice of favourite film which is Kelly's Heroes.
