I have lived in Charfield with my wife Kay for close to 30 years now, living near to the Plough Inn. Kay was born in the village and all her family have lived in Charfield for over 60 years – They bring a wealth of local knowledge! I am 71 years old and have been retired from public life since 2009. Being so warmly welcomed into the village all those years ago, I felt I would like to put something back into the village and so when a vacancy occurred a few years ago I needed no encouragement to apply to become a Councillor.
I am a Governor at Charfield Primary School and also a Trustee of the Charfield National Schools Foundation. I am pleased to be able to try to help Charfield as much as I can.
