Your Candidate in Andover South for Hampshire County Council Electons 2021

Your Candidate in Millway for Test Valley Borough Council Elections 2021

I have lived in Andover since 1960 and am married to Roslyn. Our youngest children are studying at college and university. As a qualified Electronics Engineer, I have worked successfully in education, defence and the third sector. Currently I am employed as a Trials and Test Engineer in a local Andover company.

Since the early eighties I have been an active local campaigner and volunteer, serving as a councillor at parish, borough and county level and have 25 years' experience as a school governor and charity trustee. I enjoy listening to music, watching historical, natural world and science documentaries, researching the family history and spending time with my grandchildren.

What are my priorities?

Roads, Footpaths and access to recreational spaces

Timely repairs of potholes, pavements and the cutting back of overgrown hedges and trees on footpaths.

Improve the foot and cycle paths in and around Andover linking nature reserves, parks and green spaces.

Accessible countryside and woodland paths for all including users of mobility scooters and wheelchairs.

Let's get serious about recycling

More recycling programmes to produce year-on-year increases in Test Valley's 37% recycling rate.

Reduce the use of land fill and the incineration of 58% of Test Valley's waste.

The introduction of household food waste collection and doorstep glass collection.

Education, every day a learning day

Working for a level playing field for low income and disadvantaged young people.

Working with the third sector to provide education and leisure courses using community buildings.

Protect the county library service from further cuts and reductions in hours.

Joined-up thinking on Health and Social Care

"Fix the crisis in social care." A system that joins up health and social care services across Hampshire.

End the postcode lottery, ensure people get the care and support they need with essential living activities.

Invests in care workers to ensure high quality care and give increased support for unpaid family carers.
