Jason Langley (Chair)Independent Board Member
I live just outside of Cirencester with my wife and three daughters, was born in Liverpool and raised in Yorkshire and feel that Gloucestershire offers the best of both worlds.
Trish BlainTenant Board Member
I met with Dominic Raab when he was the Minister for Housing, during his visit to CBH, and had the opportunity to discuss with him this high impact campaign that challenged the way the public think and tackled the stigma associated with social housing tenants.
I joined the Board in June 2018 and have been a CBH tenant on and off for the past 35 years. I believe very strongly that tenant voices should be heard and that tenants must influence the development of our neighbourhoods. My understanding of local authority housing management issues has developed during my membership of the CBH Tenant Scrutiny Improvement Panel.

Beverley GrimsterIndependent Board Member
John RawsonIndependent Board Member
I was born and brought up in North Yorkshire and came to Cheltenham 46 years ago after university to work for a marketing company. For more than 20 years I ran my own marketing business in Cheltenham.
I served as a Borough Councillor for 19 years and as a County Councillor for 20 years. As a councillor, I represented 2 wards with a high concentration of social housing (St Paul’s and St Peter’s) and became familiar with many of the issues facing tenants, leaseholders and people in housing need, whilst gaining a strong knowledge of housing finance.I served as a governor of several Cheltenham schools and currently chair the Cheltenham Housing and Support Forum, which brings together representatives of statutory and voluntary organisations working to help people with housing problems and related issues.
On the CBH board, I serve on the Audit and Risk Committee and the New Supply Committee. I see the work of CBH as being not just about bricks and mortar, important though this is, and more about improving the lives and life chances of our tenants and leaseholders in a broader sense, including helping people in housing need by delivering new social housing.
