Party: Bridgwater Mercury: ElectionsModule Party Logo Labour


I WAS born in South Africa and grew up in the home counties.  I have studied Engineering and Environmental Sciences and I have worked at The Met. Office, The Environment Agency and in Emergency Planning at East Sussex County Council.  16 years ago I renovated a farm in rural France which I now run as a  Holiday Cottage.  I am currently the MD of Treehouse Buildings, a Timber Construction Business based in Cheddar, where I live with my wife and daughter.  I’ve chaired the PTA at Fairlands Middle School and have recently completed a building project for the Girl Guides in Wedmore.

 I am an Environmentalist, Socialist and believe in fair-play and honesty.  I am inspired by David Attenborough, Jeremy Corbyn and Pat Smith (an amazing Cornish lady who picks up rubbish off the beach every day).

  I strongly support Local Neighbourhood Planning for decisions on housing, traffic and infrastructure – with adequate doctors, education, employment, recreation and transport – with safe routes to schools, parking and good access.
