Blog author is Rodney Bates, a Labour councillor in Surrey Heath. I was born in Camberley as one of the first kids at Frimley Park Hospital some 38 years ago. Since then, I have always lived in Camberley apart from a 3 year Uni stint at Exeter. I was first elected to the Council from Watchetts Ward in 1999 but have now represented Old Dean since 2007. I am also standing as the Labour candidate for Camberley West in the 2013 County elections. This site is promoted by Wendy Rowlands on behalf of Rodney Bates at 1 Woodway, Camberley, Surrey, GU15 3LY.
