John Clarke (Chairman)

I have lived in the village for more than 22 years. I am married to Linda, we have 2 children and 2 grandchildren. I have had a varied career having spent more than 20 years in electrical engineering in the City of London; we then bought and ran a successful hotel in Bournemouth for some years, after which we had a French restaurant and bar in Salisbury before retiring.

Lance Benest (Vice Chairman)

“I moved to Woodgreen from Bournemouth in 2015 and was amazed by the sense of community that existed in this small village. In order to find out more about village life and help support the local community I joined the Parish Council a few years later. Since retiring, I’ve also become a keen cyclist and enjoy finding new routes in and around the New Forest. I am also a keen walker and when not out on my bike or out for a hike can be found in the gym.”

Stewart Hall

I was born in Breamore but gained a passport into Woodgreen in 1988, after several years away. My interests include most genres of music, sport and country life generally. I feel fortunate to live here as it’s a friendly village with a good mix of people who really care for their community.
