I MOVED to Somerset 32 years ago and have lived on the Hamp for the past 20 years with my wife Stella and family. 

I have previously worked in Local Government for many years and continue to work in the Social Housing Sector as a Housing Officer. 

I am pleased to have served previously as your Councillor for the Hamp Ward, however this time I am standing as an Independent councillor to enable me to have the opportunity to work with all agencies and parties alike to bring the improvements to our Hamp that it deserves. 

I am pleased to have been asked by the Hamp Community Association to take on the role of chairman to deliver the long overdue new community building in Mansfield Park. 

The building will give vital new changing rooms to the local football teams but also rooms to use for other community based organisations. 

I am also honoured to be the Chair of the Bridgwater branch of the Royal British Legion; I support and regularly attend the meetings of the Hamp Community Association and the Local Neighbourhood Watch.
