I am married with one son and two step-daughters. I have lived in Tidworth for 23 years and have been the County Councillor and Wiltshire Councillor for the town for 20 years. I have also been a Town Councillor for six years, and served 3 years as Deputy Mayor, a role that was an honour to undertake. 

In addition to being a Councillor I also work full-time as a civil servant. I am sure old school and college colleagues would not believe that the punk rocker of the late seventies is now a civil servant and Councillor!

In my spare time (if I get any!), I am very keen on sport having played football for village teams and athletics for Andover (everything from 100m to the marathon!). I support Bristol Rovers and keep an eye out for local team Salisbury.

I first got into local politics soon after arriving in Tidworth as I was shocked at the lack of facilities and how run down the town had become. I am proud to have been involved in the transformation of the Town from a place that few civilian or military families wanted to live, to the up and coming place it is now. There is still a long way to go but with the leisure centre, Lidl, Tesco, Wellington Academy and Castledown Business Park, we have the building blocks for a successful and sustainable community."
