I’m a family man who lives and works here. I care about the people who live here and the place we live in. I want us to get value for money from our council services and see our money spent wisely. I’ll listen and help resolve your local issues.
Having been a councillor from 2012 until stepping down in 2019, I am continuing my involvement locally as Deputy Chairman of the Association, leading the local political strategy and supporting our excellent elected representatives and election candidates.
I have worked as a volunteer for The Children’s Trust and The Samaritans. As an active member of the Residents Association, I will, if elected, bring my experience of working within the community to the Borough Council, and will highlight the needs of local residents.
I am delighted to have had the opportunity to work with and represent the residents and businesses of Banstead over the past 7 years as your Councillor. If elected again I will continue to support local events and always look for ways to help improve our fabulous Village.
It has been my privilege to serve the community and residents in Merstham. I have been able to support many groups and charities, helping to raise both funds and awareness. I am proud to be part of the work we have started throughout our ward and look forward to continuing.
I grew up in Reigate and live in Hitchings Way with my wife (who works at Dovers Green School), son and daughter. My family live in, and grew up in, South Park and Woodhatch - I briefly played as a youngster with South Park Football Club and have many friends and colleagues in our ward too.
Having met many residents at their doorstep, I share the same concerns that we all have. My passion and my determination will help me represent you on the council to build an even better local community.
