John Davies


Associate Public Governor: Horsham District

“I moved to Steyning from West London in 1972

Although I initially qualified as an Aeronautical Engineer I am now a Chartered Engineer and a Member of The Institution of Mechanical Engineers.

 Since 1984 I have had a majority shareholding and managed several small Engineering Companies and a Building Company all based in Steyning although their area of operation was mainly in the Southern half of England.  Many Hospitals both locally and nationally were included in their list of clients

Circa 1982 I became a Governor of Steyning Grammar School and stayed for 28 years carrying out many different roles. For 5 years, during this time, I was Chair of Governors and for another 10 years vice – chair. I was privileged to lead a dedicated and professional team of Governors at a time when Governing Bodies were in the process of becoming self-managing with wide ranging responsibilities. They were involved in bringing both the Sports Centre and the Swimming Pool to Steyning as well. I was for a time a Governor and Trustee of The Steyning Grammar School Foundation Trust that owns all the School buildings and the land that they stand on.

I am currently an Associate Governor of WSH NHS Trust for the Horsham District and would hope to become an elected Governor when it becomes possible to hold elections again. I look forward to being able to contribute to the workings of the Trust and helping our Hospitals retain their ‘Outstanding’ classification.”
