Daniel Smith, Founding Member

I joined Great Wakering Primary School as a governor in October 2015. I am a Founding Member and now Chair of the Board of Trustees (formerly Vice Chair) of The Brickfields Trust.

I am a Great Wakering resident, having moved to the village from Southend in 2011 and I am really passionate about ensuring the schools within our Trust provide the best education possible to the children of the communities in which we operate.

I am from a financial services background. I've worked in banking for over 14 years and have held a number of roles, from working in high street branches through to my current role in the commercial banking space managing a portfolio of clients in the Essex area.

Rev'd Kim Lepley, Member

I was born in Colchester and brought up in the village of Layer De La Haye, which remains my family home. I completed my education in Colchester, studying Residential care and Social work. On completion of my studies I worked in Severalls hospital with adults and children with mental illness.

I moved to Walton on the Naze in the 1980’s and became a Senior Care Officer in a residential care home for the elderly and absolutely loved this work. It was while I was working in the home that I came to faith. My family were not ‘religious’ so church played no part in my upbringing, obviously it is now my life.

I met and married John in 1988, we have three children and two grandchildren. We lived in Kirby Le Soken and it was while we were living there that I began the process of discernment into ordained ministry - a journey of ten years. I completed my BA Hons in Contextual Theology and did a 3yr Curacy in Takely with Little Canfield after which I came to Great Wakering. I have been here for over four years now and really enjoy working within the local community.
