I have lived in Tandridge with my partner Debbie since 2004.

I have been elected Chairman for the 4th year running of the Tandridge District Council Residents Forum. I was elected parish councillor last May 3rd.

I am passionate both as a parish councillor and as Chair to work for the good of the local community. I have many achievements over the years from raising £2200 for a pensioner who was assaulted and robbed of his life savings just before Christmas 2016 to re-kerbing the verges in Wolfs Wood and planting trees outside Hurst Green school.

My roots began in the Peabody Estate in the Elephant & Castle which is why I am so proud to be living in Tandridge. I have a diploma part ‘B’ in Wines & Spirits having attended the Wine & Spirit Education Trust in Blackfriars Bridge  from 1982 – 1987. My specialist subjects were Champagne, Sherry and German wines.
