Personal Information

I was born and raised in Buckden and am a member and act as a co-ordinator for the local Neighbourhood Watch.


I have close family connections with the Offords and am a Supporter of the Friends of St Peter's Church, Offord Darcy Committee.


At the age of sixteen I started work in the motor industry. In 1991, a change of career meant that I worked in Highways and Transportation collecting Highway Data and carrying out Safety and Detailed Inspections before retiring in September 2006. Since retiring I have become heavily involved in community affairs and enjoy getting involved with the local residents.


My desire to help the local community led to my standing for election as a District Councillor in May 2006 and I was fortunate enough to be re-elected in 2010 and 2014. In  June 2009 I was elected as a County Councillor however after my four year term I decided to stand down in order to devote my time to District Council matters.


I am always very happy to meet local people of all political persuasions and beliefs to discuss both local and national political issues.  My aim is to make people feel more engaged with local and national democracy and I would encourage people to contact me directly to bring any areas of concern to my attention.
