Martin Colston has lived in Newbury since 1991. Married with three children, all at St Barts, he has been self-employed in market research and business strategy since 2014, following 25 years with a global, blue chip company. He was a school governor at his childrens’ infants school from 2005-15. After voting Lib Dem all his adult life, the EU Referendum politicised him and he now serves on the local party’s Executive Committee. He seeks elected office to try and help deliver positive changes for local people rather than being a frustrated bystander. His priorities will be education, youth services and adult social care.
