Your Councillors

Fulbrook Parish Council consists of a total of 4 Councillors. Parish councillors have to live, work, occupy or own land within a 3-mile radius of their town or village and are elected every four years. They receive no pay for their service. The Clerk and Responsible Financial Officer, who deals with all the administrative and financial matters and acts as an adviser to the councillors, does receive a salary.

The Clerk is not allowed to vote at meetings, but they are empowered to make certain decisions on the councillors behalf and they also provide a vital link between the Parish council and other agencies or public bodies.

Dr Filipa Hinton - Councillor

Filipa has lived in Fulbrook with her husband since 2020. She has since welcomed her twin sons into the world in 2021.

She was very pleased by how welcoming the parish council was when she moved to Fulbrook and wanted to somehow give back to the community, hence becoming a parish councillor shortly after the birth of her sons. Originally from Portugal, she moved to the UK in 2004 to undertake her undergraduate and postgraduate studies. After graduating from her PhD, she was offered an exciting opportunity to manage a research team in academia in the field of Clinical Informatics. 

Among many charitable interests, she and her husband are active supporters of DEBRA, a national charity and patient support group for people living with the rare, extremely painful, genetic skin blistering condition, Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB), also known as ‘Butterfly Skin’.
