Luke Kirton

Shaftesbury East Councillor

I am married and a dad of two young sons. We moved to Shaftesbury in June 2015 and live in Anstee Road on the Maltings estate. I currently work as a casual nursery assistant and I am a volunteer on the Snowdrops Festival committee.

Prior to living in Shaftesbury we lived in West London where I worked as a Principal Community Engagement officer for the London Borough of Hounslow covering a variety of tasks from promoting community cohesion to developing the Councils formal consultation process. I served as an elected Councillor for the Brentford Ward of the London Borough Hounslow where amongst many other things I was able to bring influence to bear across the political divide to help residents realise their community ambitions. I also spent 4 years running a local Play Association charity managing estate based, community led, play sessions for children between 5 and 11 years old, and project managing the installation of a play spaces in parks and estates.
