Meet the Team

The Chineham Chat is run entirely by volunteers who give up their time to ensure you are up to date on all community matters. 

Want to know who makes up the Team? All current members are listed below, along with their role in the Chat.

Kate Vayle


Tony Heely
Paid Advertising & Artwork


Tony lives in Chineham and has a very varied number of hobbies. When he's not engaging in Peruvian throat singing or trying to find rare orchids, you can usually find him in the local pub enjoying a pint (or five).



Kimberley Srivastava
Team Administrator


Kim moved to Chineham and joined the team in 2017. She enjoys countryside walks (and pubs), gardening and being away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Peter Malcolm


Peter is our talented photographer and whilst his photographs wouldn't be out of place in the National Geographic, he is content to enjoy the fresh air of Chineham and share his photographs with the local community.

Originally from Salford, and a keen Manchester United fan, he has been a member of Basingstoke Camera Club since 1989, where he is a Past President, and holds the distinction of LRPS with The Royal Photographic Society.

Antonia Read


Toni is our Treasurer and when she's not working, looking after her family or running you'll probably find her enjoying a few pages of a good book with a piece of cake.
