Talis Kimberley-Fairbourn sits as an independant councillor on Wroughton Parish Council. She stood as the Pariamentary Candidate for Swindon South in the 2015 and 2017 General Elections.
Talis Kimberley-Fairbourn grew up in Bristol and moved to Wroughton, Swindon, twelve years ago with her family. A songwriter and musician (as ‘Talis Kimberley’), she has also worked for the Crown Court department of a Legal Aid solicitor’s practice, and in the insurance industry.
Her songwriting led her to find her voice addressing issues that she believes should be talked about and changed. Talis is passionate about the need for human-scale solutions and community engagement, to address both environmental issues and our country’s raging social injustice.
Talis has volunteered at local schools, organised and performed at community events including helping to raise funds for the Kings Farm Wood appeal, and launched the neighbourly ‘Compost Buddies’ scheme in the wake of Swindon Council’s billed green waste scheme, about which the Swindon Adver said Talis was: “...the sort of person most neighbourhoods could do with many more of.”
Talis has in the past served for several years on Wroughton Parish Council and was twice elected Chair. In 2013 Talis joined the Green Party and she stood as a Borough Candidate in her home ward in 2014.
