I have lived in Tadley since moving here in 1969 with a young family. I joined Tadley Town Council in 1983 wanting to improve facilities for my young family and fellow residents.I have been re-elected to the Town Council ever since and for two periods was also a Borough councillor for Tadley.

As a Town Councillor I have served as Chairman on several occasions, each time making a difference to the facilities and improving the environment. I was a founder member of Tadley Citizens Advice and still serve as a trustee. I am Chair of Governors at the Bishopswood schools and also Chair of Barlow's Park community football ground which I helped to deliver for the community in 2008. As you can see I believe in a hands on role feeling that you get out what you put in.

I have had a varied career, working for the Automobile Association, a Housing Association and finally, for 18 years for the Environment Agency where I led on community engagement and media communications until I retired last year.

My long time interest in environmental issues encouraged me to become an unpaid Director of Calleva Community Energy installing solar on roofs locally. Having introduced Tadley Spring Clean week I have continued to promote green issues now through engagement with the Tadley Environment Group.
