Nick Bradley (Chairman)
Married to Sarah we relocated to Bredon in 2007 from Hereford.Â We have two children who are attending the local schools.Â It was my work as a quantity surveyor that originally brought me to this area, so when later in life we decided to relocate due to my work, Bredon was the obvious choice.Â Having held senior commercial positions within large construction organisations, the yearn to work locally, lead me to set up a construction consultancy business on the Bredon Hill, where we have been located since 2010.Â I enjoy spending any free time with my family, walking, watching sport, as participation has become limited to more relaxed sports as time goes on.Â I look forward to contributing to the efforts of the Parish Council in helping the local community.
