Ward Councillor for Kingsbridge

Cllr R D Gilbert

I have been elected as ward Councillor of Kingsbridge, a position I have held since 2007.

I am still an active member of Kingsbridge Chamber of Commerce and SHDC Executive with Environment portfolio.

I came to live in the South Hams in 1983 after a long period overseas in many capacities but predominantly in oil exploration.  I served in the Middle East, Far East,  Central and Southern Africa, and Australasia setting up exploration crews in swamps, deserts and jungles.

My wife and I successfully started various businesses locally whilst investing in affordable homes for local people, which we still own.

Whatever free time I have is usually spent working on our small holding abutting Kingsbridge.

My special interests are sailing and walking.
