I was born and and spent all of my childhood in Bath. As a Chartered Electronic Engineer I worked initially in the UK before spending a number of years working in The Netherlands and Belgium. I retired in 2016 and my wife and I moved to Corston where we are very much enjoying village life. I joined the Parish Council in 2018 and was elected Vice Chairman in 2019 and I became Chairman in 2020. I have a particular interest in planning, conservation, gardening and local history.
