Glen Hyde – Chair

As a 30 year resident of the ACT and the last 24 here in the Belconnen district, I’ve had the pleasure of raising a family and working in “the Jewel in Canberra’s Crown”. I’ve been a public servant all my life and involved in junior sport, committees and community based organisations since arriving in Belconnen in late 1995. We have much to be thankful for and so much more to protect as the largest district in the territory; our role is to promote our values and continue to grow the needs of our residents, businesses, students and visitors to the district now and in the future.

Bronwyn Vincent – Secretary

Maree Pavloudis – Acting Treasurer

Clayton Browne – Committee Member

I am an ICT Project Manager with the Public Service and a Belconnen resident for almost 4 years. I have worked with councils and State police over a long period and look forward to the next year on the BCC.

Bor Peeters – Committee Member

A Belgian for 31 years (still kind of am), I lived in the Netherlands for 8 years. I moved to Canberra, with my Australian (Latham) partner, 4 years ago. With a background in IT and an ex paramedic, I am now proud to be a full time stay at home dad for the last 5 years.

Whenever I get the opportunity I enjoy working on community improvement projects. Having previously volunteered as an administrator for homeless people in the Netherlands, I now divide my time in the ACT between a number of groups and community activities that get my attention. The first and still the most time consuming is the rollout of street libraries in Belconnen, and supporting “lids 4 kids”.

For over 12 months, I have been a key member and a Jack of all trades, for the Scullin Community Council and it’s core Scullin Traders program. I believe that there is no better way to support the Belconnen Community, then for me to join the Belconnen Community Council committee as a member. I hope to serve the public in the best and most productive way possible, and looking forward to all we can help achieve on the committee.

Charles Thomas – Committee Member

Thanks to the CSS I am a retired public servant with an economics background.  Being secretary of the local Lutheran Church takes up much of my time.  I’m involved in community service (not necessarily associated with the church).   My interests are: wine (I belong to a wine-tasting group); chocolate; model railways and the real thing; hiking especially in dense forest; the natural environment – fauna and flora; especially frogs and lizards (the extended family started Sydney, Melbourne and Perth zoos); art; architecture; history; and travel.  I do not have much time to watch TV but try to watch the news, Doctor Who and Catalyst.
