I was born in Essex and moved to Church Farm, Occold with my wife Lesley in 1974. We have 4 children Tracy, Michelle, Daniel and Christopher.
I became a Parish councillor in 1975 and I have spent most of the passing years as a member.
I had been a Occold School Governor whilst my children attended the school and held the position as Chairman for several years.
After the Queens Jubilee in 1977, ORAC (Occold Recreation and Amenities Council) was formed of which I was Chairman for the first 10 years and am still a Trustee today.
