Bio:  I have lived in the village since 1999 and been a parish councillor since February 2020. I chair  the Planning Committee and the Legal sub-committee – these are topics of great interest to me personally and also to the whole village – considering issues and then compiling succinct, accurate and meaningful responses to those issues is key to the harmony of the village.

I retired from work in 2018 and now focus on my main hobbies of horse riding (I have an Irish Sport Horse which lives in Bentley) and keeping fit at the gym (where I also work a few part time hours) … as well as keeping my house and garden in some semblance of order.

For most of 2021, I was the operations manager at a local vaccination centre where we delivered nearly 75 000 jabs!!
