AN ALCESTER man already working to improve the lives of residents has taken on a role at the town council.
Professor Chris Brannigan was appointed as a new councillor this month, having already been an active part of the town for the past 15 years.
As well as working on the boards of Advantage Alcester and Vision for Alcester, the father of five is also a trustee for the Alcester Dementia Café and sits on the committee of Alcester Youth Project.
The professor of psychotherapy at University of Derby has worked across the world, including in America, Africa and Asia and has also been on many local, national and international committees while acting as an organisational consultant within the EU.
Coun Brannigan, who lives in the town with his wife Jennifer and is set to retire soon, told the Standard: “I’ve enjoyed living in Alcester very much over the years and we see ourselves staying here.
“I can see how much the council contributes towards life in the town and it will be nice to be part of that.”
He added due to his career he had a particular interest in health but he was also looking forward to contributing to the neighbourhood plan.
