I came to live in Minehead when I was eight years old and was educated here. After leaving school I joined the family building firm. I am now semi-retired and work for two days a week in building maintenance.
I have been a Town Councillor for four years serving on and chairing committees and representing the town all over Somerset as consort to my wife as Mayor. I have been actively involved in liaising with the County Council with tree work in the Avenue, updating the Cemetery regulations and represented the Town Council on the Enterprising Minehead project.
I have been privileged to live in this beautiful town almost all my life and if elected I will do my best to ensure that any development is sympathetic to its unique character, without inhibiting economic development and tourism.
