I am a chartered engineer with the majority of my professional career working within the gas industry. I graduated in 1981 and spent until 1997 living and working in West Yorkshire before moving to take up a position based in Harlow. At this stage we moved south to Hertfordshire and settled in Hertford Heath. Further job moves involved working in the West Midlands and latterly in Braintree and central London. But having experienced the effort involved in moving the family we remained in Hertford Heath making connections and enjoying village life.
I retired in 2016 taking up interests in woodland management, carpentry, walking and cycling. Spare time allowed for a greater involvement with the fabric of life in Hertford Heath in particular supporting the creation of the Neighbourhood Plan. Sustainable Hertforfd Heath (SHH) was largely created out of a response to a series of actions identified through the Neighbourhood Plan process. SHH is a set of volunteers who take on a series of regular activities including monthly litter picks and a repair shop, an annual green energy or transport themed family picnic, an annual maypole dance and ad hoc lighting/beacon events. The creation of a community orchard over the last two years has been a real thrill with the first Orchard Day being held last year.
I look forward to getting to know the whole of Hertfod Heath and Brickendon district and joining in many of the activities that take place throughout the year.
