In the May 2015 Local Election I have been elected to be ward Councillor for Newton & Yealmpton. I was elected in 2007 and successfully defended my seat in 2011.
My background is in the profession of Chartered Surveying incorporating valuation, sales and mortgages of land and property as well as specialising in the sales and valuations of antiques.
My interests are in antiques, visiting many National Trust properties and travelling to foreign parts. Also since I was a teenager I was interested in the "Sport of Kings" being eventually appointed by the Jockey Club as a Point to Point Steward and a Judge including attending National Hunt tuition conferences.
I am a past President and Chairmen of a Young Farmers Club.
