I have lived in Wokingham area since 1983, and in Swallowfield since 1998, by far the longest time I have lived anywhere.
My two children went to Farley Hill School. My wife and I consider ourselves to be very fortunate to be living in such a beautiful and friendly village.
I originally trained as a civil engineer, later moving into loss prevention consultancy and then underwriting with a large industrial and commercial property insurer.
Since I retired a few years ago I have been looking for ways to get more involved in our community, and have decided it is time to move on from occasionally helping out, and to participate more actively. I started with the Swallowfield Community Speedwatch initiative and now intend to expand my involvement.
I am particularly interested in maintaining the attractiveness and livability of our parish, especially in areas such as littering and vandalism, excessive speed, road maintenance and availability of infrastructure services. I feel I can bring my skills to the Parish Council’s plans and actions to address these areas.
