Cllr Charles (Chas) Ryan



Aiming for good health, positive lifestyle and general well-being made

easily accessible by your local community, is the key ingredient to a

cohesive and thriving community.


My passion for sport and creating opportunities to be active, has been

driven by my long career in the Royal Airforce.

After my RAF career, I was an NHS Commissioner with The Primary Care

Trust, covering Long- term medical conditions and more recent roles

include Public Health and NHS Strategic management, specialising in the

promotion of health and wellbeing for various councils and NHS

and Running as well as hosting tournaments and social events on a regular

Plans are currently in place to have new 3G Astro with a re-branding to expand sports and their appeal to our growing community. (Look out for the

relaunch early this year).


Having had a break of 4 years as a Parish Councillor with Hampton Parish

Council, I have recently returned and am looking forward to promoting our

affordable community facilities and open spaces. I firmly believe that facilities in Hampton have great positive impact on our health, mobility and deter any potential involvement in anti-social activities.


We should be proud of what we have here in Hampton and I am keen to work

local facilities, fostering excellent health and welfare opportunities for
