Long Stratton Town Councillors
Chairman of the Council - Councillor Kelly Lunness
Committees: Leisure and Pavilion, Events, Finance, Action Group
Originally I came from Norwich and moved to Long Stratton 36 years ago when I gained employment with South Norfolk Council. I started in the building division and transferred to the environmental health department as a Client Officer overseeing contracted out services.
I then obtained my H.N.C in waste management including environmental law. The Council created a environmental crime team to carryout enforcement action on waste management issues.
In 2000 I joined Norfolk Fire & Rescue service as a retained firefighter, which I found very rewarding. I was with the fire service for approximately 12 year and left the service as a crew manager.
Within my role in the Council I was promoted to environmental crime manager. After several years the council had a restructure and I was promoted to operations manager over all functions relating to waste management and street cleansing.
I took early retirement in 2014 and have recently took an interest in the activities of the Town Council and I wanted to get involved to raise the profile of the village and council as well of making improvements that would be beneficial to residents.

I really enjoy living in Long Stratton. Before moving here in 2017 I lived in Selly Oak, before then Coventry, Nottingham, Stowmarket, and South London.
I moved here to be near my extended family and raise my own. Long Stratton is a safe, friendly, and well equipped town.
I am glad to be a councillor, to listen to you and play a part in serving this town.
Councillor Justin Harris

I moved to Long Stratton in 2014 where I developed my career in civil engineering working with and for local authorities in highways asset maintenance. Prior to moving to Norfolk I lived and worked in various places throughout the UK, across Europe and across Asia Pacific where I learnt about different communities and cultures but similarly how highly regarded the United Kingdom is. I am married with 3 Son's and in my spare time enjoy football, fitness, music and reading British & military history. I volunteered to join the council so that I could contribute my knowledge, skills and experience in making Long Stratton a fantastic place to live, work & socialise in.
Councillor Florence Morimont

I have lived in Long Stratton since 2014 where I tutor French privately. Originally born in the southern, French speaking part of Belgium I have lived in Brighton, Glasgow and Singapore working in IT but mainly as a French teacher. We have 3 boys who all have attended Long Stratton High School. I consider Long Stratton being my home so I recently became a British Citizen which I'm really proud of. I supported my local community with a few problems which inspired me to volunteer to join the town council. I am keen to help develop a safe, strong and prosperous community with opportunity for all.
