Cllr Gary Muir

Cllr Gary Muir - Deputy Mayor 2019/20

Ms Caron North, Deputy Mayoress

Gary is originally from Blackpool, but was educated at Henley College, before becoming the youngest ever Area Manager for the Association of Retailers of America.  After that he spent a decade working in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.  He moved back from the middle east in 1989 to raise his two wonderful sons, Christopher and Jonathan in Datchet.  He was elected to the Royal Borough in a by-election in 2007.

Gary has raised thousands of pounds for local charities and is involved with the Datchet Branch of the Royal British Legion. 

Caron was born and educated in Sheffield.  After college, in 1985 she moved to Old Windsor where she studied Equestrian Science and Husbandry.  Caron had several jobs where she worked, trained and cared for horses.  This led to her driving horse drawn carriages in Windsor where 34 years ago she met her closest friend Bob Regan.  This was the start of a new chapter for both Caron and Bob.  Caron started work on Bob’s farm, learnt to drive HGV lorries, bought her first horse and rescued many animals.  In 2002 the Blue Acre Horse Rescue was founded.  Caron’s 24 hour caring dedication and passion has created a sanctuary not just for horses in need but for chickens, ducks, goats and dogs.  Caron works closely with the “Ways into Work” scheme helping disadvantaged young people.  Many children and young adults visit the farm which often gives them an escape from day to day life.  Caron also works part time at the Old Windsor Club.

As Deputy Mayor and Mayoress, Gary and Caron, look forward to supporting the various local communities and charitable good causes within the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead.
