I was born and brought up in Cambridge, (Glos), where my parents were in business as Bakers and Grocers. After leaving Dursley Grammar School with seven GCE O level exam qualifications, I have lived and worked in the Severn Ward area of Stroud District Council all of my life. I moved to Whitminster in 1963, and have lived there ever since. I am married to Honor, we have five children, and eleven grand children. I am very interested in local affairs, being elected to Whitminster Parish Council in 1978, and to Stroud District Council as one of two members for the Severn Ward in 2002. Currently I serve on the Development Control (Planning) Committee, and the Licensing and Regulation Committee at SDC, as well as representing the Council on the Gloucestershire Playing Fields Association. I am also currently Vice-Chair of the District Council. In my village, as well as the Parish Council, I chair the Village Hall and Playing Field Management.
