The Sheriff

Councillor Alex Tate

Cllr Alex Tate, Sheriff of Chester 2024-25

Cllr Alex Tate

Alex was born in the East end of Glasgow and after graduating from school as Dux, she attended Jordan Hill teacher training college.

Her then husbands job took them with son Ronnie, to London and Alex worked in foreign reinsurance in the City before having her daughter Heather.  Having moved to Hertfordshire she began her literature and philosophy Open University degree and her first civil service job in St Albans.

Alex moved to Disley in Cheshire  and established a recruitment and assessment company, where she met Phil, getting married at Sale Town Hall and  moving to Chester. Following Phil’s retired, they both relocated to Edinburgh to be near family.  They enjoyed Edinburgh life, getting involved in the amazing Edinburgh festival, campaigning and fund raising for their local labour Party.  However, they felt that Chester was their home and they missed their many friends and interests.

Selling up again, they were very pleased to find their current home very close to where they had lived before. Alex was then thrilled to have the opportunity to become the councillor again for the nearby ward of Lache.

Becoming the Sheriff of Chester is an accolade Alex is proud to receive for her ward of Lache.
