Cllr. Guy Humphries - Southfields

Guy came to live in Southfields in 1983 after growing up in Wimbledon. He has brought up his family and lived here on the Grid ever since. He has enjoyed seeing the area develop into the thriving village that it is today. Alongside representing Southfields Ward on the council he is also chairman of the Licensing Committee and sits on the Planning Applications Committee.

During his early career as an actor, Guy could be seen in a variety of TV historical dramas, usually in a disguise involving dodgy wigs and frock coats. Much to his father's relief, he eventually 'got a proper job' and became involved in local business. He ran a well-known patisserie in Southfields for many years, until setting up his current property maintenance company.

He has got to know many local residents and businesses as a result, something that he relishes. Guy sees his working life as much more than just running a successful business, but also an opportunity to contribute positively back into his local area.

As vice-chair of the Grid Resident's Association, and later as co-founder of the Southfields Business Forum he became more involved with the community, eventually being elected as a councillor for Southfields in 2010.

He is a governor at Sheringdale School and Southfields Academy. He is committed to enhancing the unique charm of Southfields, with its independent shops, green spaces and successful schools - an ideal place to bring up families in a safe and welcoming surrounding. With his business background, Guy is a firm advocate for Wandsworth's Conservative council's good financial management and renowned value for money services. 

Guy still finds some time for other activities – being a bit of an anorak with a passion for old cars, he can occasionally be found tinkering with his 42 year-old yellow Mini Marcos. It has been known to break down occasionally, so do say hello if you see him by the kerb – an offer of a push would be much appreciated!
