Cllr John Challinor - Parkstone

John lives in Parkstone. He and his family moved to Poole four years ago, relocating from Bedfordshire to enjoy all that the area has to offer in terms of lifestyle, natural environment and outdoor pursuits.

He is passionate about the environment. Consequently, he is keen to protect the appeal and character of our beautiful and vibrant area through sustainable and sympathetic development. 

As a publisher within the fitness & leisure sectors, as well as a keen sportsman, John has gained valuable insight into the benefits of an active lifestyle for children and adults of all ages. He is an honorary vice president of his former rugby club where he chaired various committees. He also helps to organise fundraising events for a national cancer charity.
