Alasdair grew up in a seaside town and after leaving school joined the Civil Service and was posted to London. This led to a long and interesting career negotiating contracts around the world.

Alasdair lives with wife Paola, a teacher. The family discovered Burnham when their twins joined the Rugby Club and they soon realised this was where they wanted to live and raise their family.

As a child, I was brought up to recognise the importance of a community, the need to support those who require help and the benefit of giving each child a fair chance to reach his or her potential through education.


I recognise this has to be funded and, beyond everyone’s obligations to society, the freedom and rights of the individual need protection.  My views on this have not changed.

Following my retirement last year, I want to support and promote our community in a practical way on local issues, working with others who share these values.

Sedgemoor, as a Council, is responsible for delivering essential services.  As your Councillor, I’d ensure Sedgemoor delivers those services effectively and efficiently.
