Councillor Mike Blakeman

I moved to the village in the summer of 2012 having lived for 25 years on the edge of Warwick. I was immediately made very welcome by everyone in the village and now feel very much part of the community in this attractive and beautifully tranquil south Warwickshire village.

I retired in 2013 from the Architectural practice I was senior partner of in Coventry after some 45 years as an architect working on a wide variety of buildings including the International Convention Centre in Birmingham.

I am now working as a part time Consultant to the Practice and would now like to utilise my spare time and skills in order to help the village retain its character and charm and help to ensure that the limited funds available are spent in the best possible way and in the best interests of the village as a whole.

My interests are rugby, gardening, my dog and more rugby! I have been a life-member at Kenilworth RFC since 1987 and I am heavily involved in helping the club relocate and develop a new facility on the edge of Kenilworth.
