Councillor Darrell Muffitt

I moved to Avon Dassett in March 2014, having lived for 27 years in Surrey and London. Although we had friends in the area, my partner Sandra and I had no previous connection with the village. However, through The Yew Tree pub we quickly met people and were welcomed into the community.

After working for more than 40 years an Accountant and Management Consultant, I retired from full time work in 2014 from an American IT company where I headed their Public Sector consultancy team. Most of my working life has been focused on the Public Sector and has included Local and Central Government as well as Health and International Government Agencies.

I have also gained additional experience as an Independent Member of the Audit Committee of the charity Scope and as working part-time as a consultant with an international law firm to establish a UK management consultancy practice.

In becoming a Councillor, I try to use my skills, knowledge and expertise for the benefit of the community. I recognise the importance of keeping The Yew Tree as a focal point for the community and I currently chair the Social Benefit Society that has bought the freehold of the pub. In addition, I want to support the maintenance of a high standard of village environment and ensure that public assets are maintained to the highest possible standards.

My interests are gardening, walking, sailing and rugby. I am a member of Wasps , Kenilworth RFC and a life-member of Barking RFC.
