Chairman PhotoIn May 2011 Lavinia Sealy was elected as Surrey County Council’s new Chairman.

Former history and politics teacher Mrs Sealy, who has also been a governor of several mainstream and special schools including Wishmore Cross, is heavily committed to working with the voluntary and busines sectors and will also be supporting Guildford Cathedral in this, its Golden Jubilee year.

She has played a key part in setting up Surrey Compact – a partnership between public, voluntary, community and faith organisations.  She also oversaw the passing of the Council’s countryside estates including Chobham Common to Surrey Wildlife Trust.  She is particularly interested in helping Youth organisations locally in Chobham, Bisley and West End and across the Borough and Surrey.

Mrs Sealy said, “It is a real honour to take on the important role of connecting County Hall with local communities, charities and other organisations in Surrey.  A key role will be to work with all eighty Councillors who are the eyes and ears of local communities, and who represesnt one million people across Surrey”. 

Mrs Sealy will be remaining very much in touch with her local communities, and will be holding regular ‘Surgeries’ in each of the villages, (Chobham, Bisley, West End and Lightwater), where village residents can come and talk to her about local issues and Council matters.  Details of these Surgeries can be found on this blog.
