Matthew Sheehan (Clerk)
At the age of 19 I joined the Army as a mechanic in the REME where I served 9 years and reached the rank of Corporal. After the Army I spent a few years in Peterborough as a mechanic before returning to the area living in Ludlow with my mother.
After that I lived 16 years on Clee Hill before returning to live in Cleobury Mortimer with my father after my mother died. I now share a new home in Cleobury with my wife Kaz who supports and works with me.
I have 2 grown up daughters from my previous marriage in Peterborough and a grown up step son from my ex partner on Clee Hill. I designed a dart stand which is produced by a major darts company and I supply all the top Dart players with their merchandise and play a lot of darts myself.
I have taken on the role of Clerk as I have deep connections with Cleobury seeing the changes over the last 50 years and will do all I can for the benefits of Cleobury Mortimer and its residence.

Sean Thorogood (Chair)
I have lived in Cleobury Mortimer since 2005. Prior to this, I lived in Kinlet for eleven years. I am married to Dawn and have a grown up daughter and son who were both educated at Lacon Childe school.
My career started in 1981 working within the family Engineering Distribution business based in Kidderminster (CBS Rotary Power Motion Ltd). I became Managing Director in 1995 and with the help and support of my brothers we expanded the business to a 9 branch, £7 Million sales operation, servicing the Midlands and South Wales .
In 1998 CBS was asked to become a member of IADA which was a £55 million sales turnover national alliance of independent authorised distributors, consisting of 20 independent companies across the UK. In 2006 I was asked to become the chairman of the group.
In 2007 CBS was approached by our largest competitor who were keen to acquire the business, which we subsequently sold. I remained with the new company to integrate staff up until December 2009. I am currently developing a business within the motor sport industry.
I became a Parish Councillor in June 2010 and am very pleased to be part of the team. My aims and objectives as a councillor are to help the community and add value where possible.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any parish issues that you would like to discuss.

On leaving the Service, for 10 years I worked for British Tour Operators checking hotels and self-catering apartments in different countries to ensure the fire safety and health & safety equipment and procedures were satisfactory.
I then started a small business, carrying out fire risk assessments and fire safety training in various businesses.
I have resided in Cleobury Mortimer since October 2004. I have been involved in Cleobury Mortimer Bowling Club and I am the Club Secretary. I am also a member of the local branch of the Royal British Legion and a Committee member of the Parish Hall.
I have lived in Cleobury for all 18 years of my life. After leaving Lacon Childe School two years ago, I have recently completed an A levels course in Business, Economics, Politics and History at Worcester College of Technology, my chosen subjects playing a key part in my decision to join the council. I am vice-chairman of the Parish Hall committee and sit on the Cleobury Mortimer Concert Brass committee where I also lead the youth band. I currently work at Lacon Childe School in the PE department and at the Leisure Centre.
