Crowthorne Parish Ward Chairman of the Crowthorne Educational Charity
I have lived 11 years in the village, worked in the locality as a building services professional, and served in the Territorial Army for 24 years.
I look forward to continuing to serve on the Council representing local views in promoting the interests of the village; taking particular notice of future major developments: ensuring that proposed changes will be delivered efficiently and enhance life style opportunities for all. My other interests are motorbikes and golf.
