Mr Geoff Lumley

Welcome to My Website

Geoff LumleyOn 2 May 2013 the people of Newport East ward (the communities of Pan, Barton and Shide) honoured me by re-electing me for a third time to be their IW councillor (and Newport Parish councillor) for the next 4 years - now one of two Labour councillors on a Tory/Ukip lead IW Council. It will continue to be my role to challenge, hold to account and scrutinise the decisions of the Council leadership. Of course I will spend most of my time on ward matters, which is my main function. I hope I will continue to get the balance right.

Please leave messages on my Home phone number and I will get back to you within 24 hours unless I am away. I also generally respond to emails within 24 hours, particularly those from residents, again unless I am away.

About Me

Name: Mr Geoff Lumley
Political Group: Labour
Electoral Division: Newport East
Address: 30 Fairlee Road
Isle of Wight
PO30 2EJ
Telephone: 521686
Biography: I live two minutes walk outside Newport East, in Fairlee Road, with my partner Mary. I have lived in Newport for 25 years and 28 years on the Island in total, having moved here from London - where I gained a BSc honours degree at the London School of Economics in 1979. Originally I am from Sunderland and then Durham in the north east - which you will be able to tell when I speak! I am now 59 years old.

I took early retirement in 2013 after a working life in local government (20 years in housing and social services) and then the civil service (14 years). Throughout my working life I was an active trade unionist and I retain retired membership.

I have been involved in Pan issues for over 20 years and am delighted to be both it's and Shide's elected representative at County Hall.
