Your Parish Councillors

John Batey - Chairman

I was born and raised in Durham: After National Service in the RAF I moved to Oxford to join the Oxford City Police. I was a police officer for 12 years and during that time I married Margaret, who is also from Durham. We lived in Blackbird Leys for 9 years and our two sons were born there. We moved to our present home in Horseman Close in 1968. Margaret (later a Headteacher) taught at St. Nicholas' School and our boys went there. One son now lives in London and the other in Miami. We have one grandson.

I left the police service with an exemplary record and, after college, entered teaching when I was 34. I served in schools in the city and county and was Headteacher of two schools before retiring. I visited America on educational visits 3 times during my headships.

Taking up local voluntary work, I was elected Chair of Governors at two schools - the old Milham Ford School and (for 7 years) St Joseph's School, Headley Way. I was also elected Vice-Chair of the parish council and during that time was the Oxford parish councils' representative on the City Council Standards Committee. I then took a sabbatical to have a break from my many commitments!

Returning to voluntary work, I served as Chair of Trustees at Oxford Citizen's Advice Bureau and was a member of Oxfordshire's Schools Admissions Appeals Panel for several years.

I had another break with illness and short hospitalisation. Regaining health, I decided to stand for parish council again. I am committed to serving the Old Marston community where I have lived for 46 years.


Duncan Hatfield - Vice-Chairman, Webmaster

I have lived in Marston for nearly twenty years. I am originally from Wallingford. I went to Liverpool Polytechnic to study Geography. I moved to Oxford in 1991 to work as a care worker for the health service. After a number of years I moved onto retail work and administration. I currently work as an operator for a local taxi company. I joined the parish council in 2006 and became Vice-Chairman in 2010. I am responsible for organising the annual OxClean litterpick in Old Marston and manage the website, Facebook, Twitter, Streetlife sites and the on-line profile of the council.

Nils Bartleet

During the period 1966-72 I worked as a flying instructor and flight manager for CSE at Oxford Airport. In 1971 I moved, with my wife and daughter, to Marston.. After this I was employed as an airline pilot for various companies, one of which was British Air Ferries. I represented general aviation as a delegate from the British Airline Pilots Association. I served on the parish council first from 1983-87.  During May 1989 I was elected as a labour county councillor and served for twelve years, I was deputy leader and environment spokesperson for the labour party. I rejoined as a parish councillor in 1991 until now. I have been a governor of Sandhills School since 1989. I chair the Oxford Airport Consultative Committee.


Michael Cadd

I was born in Bristol; in 1939 and moved to Oxford in 1954 when I started a five year apprenticeship with British Leyland Motor Corporation (BLMC) garage in Oxford. I achieved my City and Guilds Certificate in Motor Mechanics and remained with the firm for eighteen months. I then moved to Morris Motors where I stayed for three years. I then started in the garage trade and remained for 30 years. In 1984 I bought The Three Horseshoes Public house in Old Marston with my wife Jean and we still live in the village. I joined the Parish Council in 2006


Peter Cox

Born in Weston–Super-Mare, Somerset, I moved to Oxford in 1952 when my late father Wing Commander John Cox, was posted to Kidlington Airfield. I was educated at Salesian College Grammar School in Cowley and on leaving I took up an editorial position with Pergamon Press in Headington. In 1974 I had a change of direction and joined W. Lucy, an electrical engineering firm in Jericho, here I had two spells of employment ending in 1996. Settling in the village of Old Marston in 1980 has been the best ever move for me. I was accepted onto the Parish Council in 2003 and, if allowed to, I would like to carry on a good while longer.

Barry Lewis

Barry was born in 1943 in Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk. In 1969 he moved to Cambridge where he worked for S.C.B. (Scaffolding Britain) as a scaffolder.

Angie Tiwari

I was born in Punjab Northern India, I came to the UK in 1967 after I got married to Ken Tiwari. I have two children a son and daughter. They both were born and educated in Oxford. I moved to Salford Road, Old Marston in June 1972. My husband, Ken Tiwari was an Oxford City Councillor for 9 years, currently he is a Parish Councillor for Risinghurst and Sandhills. He had won 3 consecutive elections to Oxford City Council. I am a teacher at Cheney School, Headington. I have been teaching for 22 years in Oxford City schools. I have also taught at Milham Ford School. I was extremely sad to see the school closed down. This was the only girls school in Oxford. I have now  been a Parish Councillor  for 27 years. Being a local Councillor I would like to see this area safe and well maintained. I also do voluntary work at the J.R. Hospital. I must say it is rewarding and enjoyable to work with a lovely team.I have also worked for the Thames Valley Police for about 10 years as an interpreter and translator. I was a member of the Women’s Sub Committee of Oxford City Council to represent all women’s issues of all backgrounds. I enjoy being a Parish Councillor and would like to do several tasks and improvements in the area. I would like also to see some kind of amusements, leisure and entertainment place where the young generation can enjoy their spare time. Just to show local parishioners money is well spent.

I was born in Oxford and attended St Andrew's Primary School in Headington and Milham Ford School when it was still a Grammar School. My first job was in the Finance Department of the Bullingdon Rural District Council as a secretary. I moved to Cherwell Drive, Old Marston about forty-four years ago with my late husband and three children who all attended St Nicholas Primary School and the Harlow School before going on to Milham Ford and Oxford Boys Schools. I now have six grandchildren ranging in age from twenty-six to six years and three of them live with their parents in the parish. These three all attended St Nicholas and Cherwell School. It is a testament to the local schools that they have all done so well. Two of them already have their degrees and the youngest has just started at A University in London. I worked for the NHS for thirty-one years as a manager in the Oxford Cancer Intelligence Unit and retired in June. 2010. I am a member of the National Trust and am looking into becoming a volunteer. I do upholstery classes, love reading and gardening and am probably what is known as a lady that lunches! I was co-opted onto the Parish Council in 2010. Old Marston is a great place to live. I am more than happy to give some of my time and to help in any way to ensure that it remains so.
