County Councillor: Chris Mills

The Warwickshire County Council representative for Kineton Division & Red Horse which includes Avon Dassett is Councillor Chris Mills. Chris was elected in 2021 and sent this message to the village:

Hello residents of Avon Dassett, I would like to introduce myself as your new County Councillor.

Born in Woolwich South London, I started my working life in the capital by becoming a printer, eventually joining a paper mill in Kent working in the laboratory.  I moved to the Midlands 1983 with the same company as a regional sales manager and settled in Kineton where I raised my family. I finished my career in the paper industry working for an American paper company as National Sales Manager until 2020.

During that time, I became a District Councillor in 2007 and am honoured to be elected as a County Councillor to represent the residents of Avon Dassett.

I look forward to meeting many of you in the future and can be contacted at any time on 07966 133607
