My Current Work:

About Me:

My wife Faith and I have been married for 35 years.  We live in Butts Ash having lived in the New Forest area for over 20 years.  

I have been employed in local Government for a large percentage of my working life starting as a humble gardener which has given me a wealth of experience on how Councils work.  My last position was as a Manager of a service which won national and local awards.

Over the years I have held various Leadership roles, spoken at venues in the UK and abroad and was on the Board of Directors of an International Charity for 7 years.

Since being semi-retired I have become involved in the local community and am Chairman of the local Community Centre.  I initiated and co-ordinated a group made up of the local Authorities and relevant organisations, which is bringing on-going improvements to the local area.  My wife and I also ‘litter pick’ on a regular basis.  Being involved in this way has given me a real heart for local people and their issues.

Having lost both my parents & in-laws through cancer, heart disease or dementia, I am keenly aware of the problems that many families have to cope with and the need of support and help. 

In my spare time I love getting out in my sea kayak, caravaning and reading personal development books. I also enjoy watching most sports having run, played football, table tennis and other sports in the past.

I believe Councillors are elected by the people for the people.  It is my privilege to represent and serve Butts Ash & Dibden Purlieu as a District Councillor and Butts Ash as a Parish Councillor. 

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have queries/issues that you need help with.
