I was born in Challock and attended the Norton Knatchbull School. Our family’s Kent roots trace back to 1572, and several of my relatives live in and around Wye. I am a family man, age 52, and have lived in the parish of Wye since 1992. Together with my brother I run a successful local business employing 25 people.
I want to serve the residents of Wye in preserving all the things that make it such a special place, while improving facilities and the quality of life for residents. As Chairman of Wye with Hinxhill Parish Council I have earned a reputation for hard work, business sense, and an ability to solve problems. With the support of my colleagues I am working with them on current issues, including the Wye 2030 Neighbourhood Plan, Telereal Trillium’s masterplan for WYE3, proposed new housing developments on WYE2, and Naccolt brickworks, Willesborough, J10A Conningbrook, the upgrading of the National Cycle Route 18 through Wye and the Multi-Use Games Area project for Wye’s young people. I am also responsible for keeping the Parish Council within its budget.
