Cllr David Fraser MBE
Local Old Malden Councillor
David has served on the Council for thirty years, including three terms as Deputy Mayor. A retired social worker, he spends much of his spare time helping disadvantaged families. He was awarded an MBE for his community work, including raising funds for an electric wheel-chair for a double amputee and a walking brace for a young teenager. At the time of the EU ‘butter mountain’ he personally delivered surplus butter to each elderly and disabled resident in his ward. Today he is active on behalf of the Kingston Association for the Blind, Arthritis Care, Smith’s Charity (Parish of St John’s), the Horton League of Friends, and is a a governor of Richard Challoner School and President of the Motspur Park Horticultural Society. He led the fight against a proposal close South Lane from the A3, which would have affected residents on the Painters Estate.
Kevin was born in New Malden and brought up in Old Malden having attended Burlington and Beverley Schools. He is a school Governor in Kingston and has run and established a number of innovative charities in the education sector. He has run a Kingston-based business as well as being the Chairman of a Trust in the centre of Kingston that is raising the profile of Kingston as a place of national historic importance.
Old Malden is also represented by an independent councillor
Cllr Mary Clark, who was elected as a Conservative, now sits as an independent councillor
“After many years of working with Mary, both on the Council and in Old Malden,
it is a great shame that things have reached this stage,“ says Kevin. ”The Conservative Group have
been mindful of the fact that Mary has struggled with her very heavy responsibilities as Deputy
Mayor. There was a dispute between the Group and Mary over whether she could or could
not serve as a member or Chair a whole range of committees and this was something we were
not able to resolve. We naturally wish Mary well in her role as Deputy mayor and look forward
with working with her on positive aspects of the future of Kingston.”
