Parish: Ware - St Mary's
I moved to Ware with my parents as a baby and grew up here. After some time away, I moved back with my family 17 years ago as my wife Sandy and I thought Ware was an excellent place to raise our two boys. I have always been passionate about working in the community and on green issues. I have volunteered with local groups including the Wombles of Wareabouts and Southern Maltings. I co-foundered and Chair the Ware-based Herts Foetal Alcohol Syndrome Support Network for people and families living with FASD. I was co-founder and Chair of the Burning Issue Group which successfully fought Biff’s proposal to build a giant waste incinerator at the landfill on the other side of the A10 from the Vicarage estate. I’ve been a primary and secondary school governor. I have worked in charities for my entire career which took me for a time to Brussels and to Washington DC. I currently work for Oxfam on a mitigating the effects of conflict on civilians. On the Council I most enjoy helping people in the local community to resolve problems or to achieve goals.
