I am married with two adult children and have lived in Oxted since 1992. I previously worked for an international energy company and retired in 2000 following which I was a Governor at Holland Junior School in Hurst Green for four years. I have managed a Neighbourhood Watch for my road  for over 25 years and take a keen interest in local affairs and matters affecting the quality of life in our town. I have also been actively involved with the Oxted & Limpsfield Residents Group since 2016. My other interests include cricket, military and political history, and listening to jazz.
