Special Interests

I have been married to my wife Jean for some 36 years and we have lived for over 30 years in Twickenham Road in the heart of my ward and she has run a Hairdressing Salon business here for almost all that time. We have two grown-up children and one grandson who all live locally.

I have worked in the Financial Services Industry as an Independent Financial Adviser for most of my life.

My hobbies are participating in Town events, Sport, Films and quiet days out.

I have been Chairman of the Town Councils’ Events Committee for 4 Years out the last 8 and also the Treasurer of the Newton Abbot Carnival for the last 7 years and I play a very active part in most of the Town Events even being one-third of the Town’s infamous Booze Brothers.

As a current Town Councillor for Milber and District Councillor for Buckland and Milber it is my belief there is no greater pleasure than trying to help my Community and on a wider basis the Town of Newton Abbot and the District as a whole.

It was a very great honour to have been Mayor of Newton Abbot in 2011/12.
