I have been a parish councillor for the past four years and live on Lime Tree Place with my wife, son and dog Teddy. I am keen to ensure the village retains its identity, character and community spirit. I feel the latter of these is the most important. It is the factor which makes the place where we all live, work, socialise and relax more enjoyable. I hope we can take this community forward in an inclusive way by working with the various groups around the parish to host events, protect our environment and ensure the parish thrives for all residents.
