    Mac MacDonald



    After a full military career, Mac and his family settled in Thetford, making it their home in 2014. Keen to support the towns RAF links he was a driving force behind the granting of freedom for RAF Honington, a link which he hopes to build on. Mac’s hands-on approach and can-do-attitude to support the town has seen his involvement in many activities such as; The River Corridor Group, Community Speed Watch, 100 Day Womble Litter Pick, Norwich Road Estate Residents Association (Deputy Chair), Safer Thetford Action Group (Chair) and the Staniforth Trust (independent) to name but a few.

    Still wearing an RAF uniform a few days a week in a reserve role, he also works at the RAF Regiment Heritage Centre as Manager, although he believes that the other volunteers may actually be in charge.

    He is looking forward to meeting more of the fantastic volunteers from across the town and working with them, whilst also collaborating with the other Councillors to help Thetford reach its potential.

    His mantra is “If you are positive in thought word and deed, Thetford will benefit”
