Self-confessed Cricket nut starts new innings as Chairman of the County Council

Councillor Kevin Rostance, a self confessed Cricket-nut, has started a new innings, as Chairman of Nottinghamshire County Council.

Kevin was unanimously elected to the position by fellow councillors at the County Council’s Annual General Meeting. Councillor Stuart Wallace was elected as Vice-Chairman.

Having played since his school days, Kevin is an avid cricketer and has been involved with Papplewick and Linby Cricket Club for the past 18 years, both coaching and playing and is still eager to put on his whites when called upon!

Councillor Rostance said: “It is an absolute honour to be going into bat as Chairman of the County Council and I am delighted to represent the county where I have lived and worked all my life. I am sure I will have to deal with the odd bouncer or two when I’m chairing Full Council meetings, but as long as everyone is shaking hands at the close of play, I will be happy!”

Kevin has been a county councillor since 2009, and a district councillor at Ashfield District Council since 2015.

A lifelong Hucknall resident, Kevin attended the Annie Holgate Schools as a child before joining John Player & Sons to train as an electrical engineer. Kevin has run his own business, Hi Tech Security Ltd, for the last 30 years.

He has always been actively involved in the community, being a member of the Rotary Club of Hucknall for 25 years, of which he has been elected as president three times and achieved the Paul Harris Fellowship accolade.

He is currently a governor at Butlers Hill school and the new Hucknall Flying High Academy which he will be proud to open in September 2019.

Kevin married his wife Jayne in 1976 and they have three sons; Anthony, Philip, who is also a County and District Councillor and Adam. He has two grandchildren, William and Harper Lily.

Commenting on his selection of the Motor Neurone Disease (MND) Association as his chosen charity for the year, he said: “A family friend has been diagnosed with MND and I’ve seen at first hand the devastating impact the illness can have on someone and the people around them. The MND Association works tirelessly to improve care and support for all those impacted by what is an extremely cruel condition. I hope local people will help me raise some money and awareness of MND.”
