Nick Stapleton Nick Stapleton

Tonbridge & Malling Borough Councillor for West Malling & Leybourne

Parish Councillor for West Malling


Nick has lived in the Malling area for the majority of his life, after growing up on Broadwater Farm. He works as a driving instructor, covering Malling, Sevenoaks and Tonbridge, so spends all of his day out and about. He was previously a florist and owned his own shop - now putting these talents to use by taking care of the small garden by the West Malling War Memorial. Nick's interests include History and Languages, and he has a particular love for Scandinavia and Iceland.

Nick has been on West Malling Parish Council since November 2017. He is now the chairman of the Highways, Transportation and Streetlighting committee, and coordinates the town's Speedwatch scheme. He has worked closely with Trudy Dean since 2016, working for the residents of West Malling. He has also been building up the party's presence in Leybourne and Leybourne Chase, with help from Bill Banks.

In May 2019, he was elected as one of the three Borough Councillors for West Malling and Leybourne.
