Council Members

Councillor Elizabeth Andrew BSc PhD


I have lived in Gateshead all my life and moved within the Parish in 2012.  I joined the Parish Council in March 2021 and represent the Longshanks & Team Colliery Ward.

I studied Chemical & Pharmaceutical Science at the University of Sunderland, followed by a PhD in organic chemistry.  Since graduating I am still employed full time with the same company and carry out pharmaceutical drug research and development and GMP synthesis.

I enjoy travelling and seeing the world, theatre, cinema and fun activities with my daughter.

I am very interested in the community services within the Parish and how the council can continue to support them.
