In my adult working life, I have been active in running businesses in the advertising and marketing sector in the UK, mainly based in London. As I have moved towards retirement I want to help support the local area that I have enjoyed living in for so many years. I believe that community hubs are at the centre of ensuring our rural values and way of life is best preserved and enhanced for everyone to enjoy.
My particular fields of interest are the protecting our environment, promoting affordable house for local residents and supporting local theatre programmes and the Arts.
Personally I enjoy running, cycling, keeping fit and most outdoor activities.
