Cllr Pippa Graeme
Pippa has a strong belief that local communities are increasingly important and that people who can listen and advocate for what is right for the community, independent of party politics, are needed more than ever.
She has lived in Weybridge for over 20 years and her two, now grown up, children went to school here. She loves being active in the community and is to be found out and about daily, exploring the local area with her two labradors - Dexter and Jasper.
Pippa worked for IBM throughout her career and enjoyed a number of senior roles as a member of the UK Human Resources management team. As a trusted advisor, she forged strong working relationships, handled complex and sensitive matters with discretion and diplomacy, building a track record of successfully solving problems and dealing with complex issues. She is now putting her business experience to use in promoting the interests of all residents, local businesses, the wider Weybridge Community and Elmbridge Borough
Since taking early retirement Pippa has developed many new interests and has become more involved with the local community through volunteering. More formally she holds roles as
Governor at St James Primary School.
Trustee and leading member of WAHGA (Weybridge Allotment Holders’ and Gardeners’ Association).
Pippa tends to her much loved allotment plot and actively brings the allotment community together by running charity quiz nights and mentoring allotment gardeners. She also took up bridge a few years ago and now regularly play socially and competitively.
Pippa loves to be busy and always has a project on the go. She is a keen environmentalist, a passionate advocate of diversity and is really enthusiastic about representing the needs of Weybridge residents and being able to contribute to local affairs.
When elected to EBC in May this year Pippa said "It is an honour to represent Weybridge St George’s Hill ward, and a responsibility which I am taking on seriously and with full commitment.”
