I was born in Winterslow and I have lived on Weston Lane all of my life.
I spent all of my school years at Winterslow school, becoming Head Boy, and was one of the last pupils to attend until the age of 16.
On leaving I went straight to work on the family arable farm where I worked for 40 years.
I am married to Patricia and we have two children, Justin and Elizabeth.
My interests are music; singing with my group “The Pathfinders”, sport; supporting “the Saints”, and the Church; attending the Baptist Church on Weston Lane.
I have served on the Parish Council for over 30 years, having also been Chairman.
Currently I am a member of the:
• Recreation Ground group
• Emergency Snow Planning group
• And working on the SIDS Project
For over 70 years, I have enjoyed being involved with many village organisations always with the best of interests of the village at heart.
In the past my family made the ground available for the council houses at Highfield Crescent In 1990 we gave land to the village for the new Village Hall, Carpark and Tennis Court, and also made land available for the Doctors Surgery.
We are proud that we have been able to assist in providing these facilities, in a manner in which we hope to continue.
