I married a local girl in 1985, and we lived in the surrounding villages until we moved to Lang Farm in 2002. We now have two grown up daughters, and my wife and I have recently become Grandparents, which is absolutely amazing.

We run our own family business which we started in 2008, which has allowed me to spend more time with my family, which I believe life should be all about.

I was elected as a District Councillor for the first time in May 2012, representing Hill Ward. I believe I have successfully balanced family commitments with running our family business. Previously I worked for an internationally commercial supply catering company for 22 years with various roles in service, marketing and sales, with extensive travel within many countries.

I am very active within my local community, and can be found around all three areas of the Ward areas most days of the week walking and meeting people. I am especially interested in the elderly of the community and our environment in which we live. Residents who know will contact me directly with their concerns which I always will get back to them, which will be supported by the people I have met and represent.

My role as Access & Communication Portfolio Holder is to assist the Council’s ongoing work to ensure our services are accessible to all, and the customer is at the heart of everything we do.

My membership of the Strategy Group is to review and assist that all that is brought forward is discussed and reviewed with common sense and for the better of the district.

I’m also on the Licensing Committee, making sure that everyone who requires licensees adheres to the correct procedures - this includes all food outlets, taxis, pubs and clubs etc.

I’m also on the Daventry Town Development Implementation Working Group which looks at the larger picture of the growth of our town over the next 40 years, making sure that we will leave Daventry in the best possible way we see fit for our children’s children, which is very important to me.

I recently joined the Daventry Over Fifties Forum, where did the time go?

My priorities as a Councillor are to:

• Carry out all my duties in a friendly, sincere and open manner.

• Represent the interests of residents both individually and collectively within my Ward to achieve positive outcomes for them.

• Promote the maintaining of services whilst keeping DDC’s Council Tax level low in a difficult financial climate.

• Ensure that the Council gives out licenses to companies or traders in the county that have filled out the correct criteria, and that it is in the best interest of Daventry.
