Deputy Mayor of Newton Abbot

2021 – 2022

Councillor Carol Bunday

I was born and bred in Newton Abbot and attended a local primary and senior school in the town.

On leaving school I trained to become a hairdresser working in a local salon.

I later began working at Coombeshead Academy where I give support to students with behaviour and social problems. I retired in 2013 to concentrate on my council role and ward

I have two sons, my eldest now runs his own cleaning business which he started after spending 3yrs in the Army and my youngest son is a trained Chef working at a well-known restaurant in the area, in his spare time he is a sergeant within the Special Constabulary.

I very much enjoy my role as a Councillor and am always keen to support the town in any way I can.

I am very involved with the 1322 squadron ATC in Newton Abbot where I am the Chairman of the Civilian Trustee Committee. I am also very much involved in the Meadowside Trust & Newton Abbot CIC.
