Chair of Community Engagements Committee
I have lived and worked in the Tidworth area for over 40 years and seen so many positive changes over this time. Both my wife and I have a great interest in the community – ‘Teressa has been Chair of Governors at Clarendon School – We are keen to help out in the community whenever we can. I am currently the Chairman of the Community Services committee, this committee meets monthly and we manage and discuss things that have a physical function for the town such as: grounds maintenance, Play parks and our Mortuary chapel and Cemetery – amongst many other things. In my “spare” time I volunteer “over the bridge” at Ludgershall football club running the refreshments bar and doing the after match food and have even managed the team when the manager couldn’t make it. Most weekends you can find me indulging in my other passion as a party singer and DJ at Weddings, birthdays, etc.… I started attending Town Council meetings around 2008 as a member of the public and I really liked what I saw, Tidworth Town Council were forward thinking, proactive and were really up for positive change and growth in the town and importantly had real community spirit. So I applied to join and here I am almost 10 years later. I really enjoy having a hand in shaping the future of the town I grew up in. The Tidworth population is becoming more and more diverse see how we are really bringing all members of an increasingly diverse community together. I currently in Tidworth work for Carrillionamey as an Accommodation Officer, I have done since 2016 and its great seeing things from both the civilian and the military side and being able to gain an understanding of peoples concerns and try to advise upon or resolve their issues. My vision as a Town Councilor is for our whole town to be much more integrated, we need more social integration and less of the “historical” divide, It is better than ever before, but I believe there is still lots to be done.
