Councillor Rob Moore represents the Howletch ward.
My name is Rob Moore, I am your town councillor for Howletch ward and have lived in Peterlee since 1994.
I grew up and was educated in Lancashire and Merseyside, before joining the Army in 1984, where I served for almost 10 years in the Royal Corps of Signals, I deployed to the Gulf in 1990 as part of 1st Armoured Division, I am very proud to have served my country, just as my father had done during WWII through to the 1960’s and Have 2 brothers that also served.
I founded East Durham Veterans Breakfast Club in 2016 which now has a membership of almost 300 veterans, and I am also Secretary/Treasurer of the local branch Royal Signals Association.
For the past few years, I have had the honour of parade marshall for the annual remembrance day parade.
Prior to being elected to council, I worked in the HGV industry and Taxi trade for about 16 years, before getting a job at EDS which then became Hewlett Packard.
Hobbies include watching documentaries, web research, building computers and my cockapoo Ruby.
I became involved in local politics about 5 years ago and wanting to give something back to the town, I decided to run for council and here I am.
