Party: Bridgwater Mercury: ElectionsModule Party Logo Liberal Democrat


I AM the current Liberal Democrat Sedgemoor District Councillor for North Petherton and also serve on Somerset County Councillor. I am a former Mayor of North Petherton and I have been a Town Councillor for 14 years. I grew up in nearby Goathurst and have lived in North Petherton for 26 years.

I worked as a History teacher at schools in Bridgwater and Taunton in my career, and was a Head of Year and Assistant Headteacher. I have also been a carer. I am a widower and I have three grown up children Rosalind, Nicholas and Timothy who all went to local schools.

I am a Vice President member at North Petherton Cricket Club where I set up and ran the junior section for many years. Last year I adopted two ‘rescue’ dogs, Barney & Bailey and I enjoy walking them in our beautiful countryside.

I enjoy representing North Petherton ward on the local councils and always try my best to speak up for the communities I represent. The needs of developers is too often put before the needs of our rapidly growing community and the infrastructure for health education and transport that we need. It’s time to put people first.
