I am Norfolk born and bred, and have lived in Tacolneston all my life. I am married with four grown-up children. An experienced local councillor, I have served the division of West Depwade since 2005.
I became involved in local politics through my passion for improving the quality of lives for people in my local community. As a county councillor, my desire to deliver better schools and safer roads in my division remains undimmed.
The schools in the West Depwade area have had very good Ofsted reports in recent months. Meanwhile, I am constantly trying to improve the highways network in my division, with the repair of potholes, resurfacing and the creation of new footpaths being top of my priorities.
I am chairman of Tacolneston Parish Council, as well as a churchwarden of Tacolneston All Saints church.
