Stroud youth worker Adrian Oldman has been co-opted to Stroud Town Council.

Adrian, who has lived and worked in Stroud across a period of more than 40 years, and will represent Farmhill and Paganhill ward.

Though he trained as a Chartered Secretary, Adrian has worked for the past 20 years in communications and marketing for a range of social enterprise, charities and housing associations. 

He currently works as a communications consultant, as well as a part-time youth worker for Stroud-based charity, The Door.

Adrian said: “Ever since I came to work in Stroud in the late 1970s, I fell in love with the town. For me, it has everything that you could want – beautiful countryside with our hills and valleys, vibrant, mixed communities, great pubs, and a vibrant, independent, and social business community.

“Politics, especially at a local level, is about all the day-to-day things that affect people’s quality of life. It’s clear to me that the Town Council has a great vision for the town and its people, and I’m incredibly excited about playing my part in helping deliver its vision.”
