Moving from the South of England eight years ago, I happily settled, together with four generations of my family in the Heart of St Anne’s on the Sea. I quickly became involved with helping people in the neighbourhood, and supporting local groups & events.
My work, at many different levels in Electronic Engineering has enabled me to develop a wide range of interpersonal skills which have made me a team player, a good listener and a problem solver. I am friendly and sympathetic to other people’s needs.
For many years, I was involved in the training & support of Engineering apprentices, and started out as an apprentice myself. Professionally, I am a member of the Institute of Engineering and Technology, and the Engineering Council.
For the last 5 years, I have been a Volunteer ‘Street Rep’, In and around Central Ward, helping clear litter, reporting things like damaged pavements, potholes, defective street lights, as well as suggesting improvements, and highlighting litter hot spots. I have also helped in beach clear ups, and supported local campaigns.
I care passionately for St Anne’s on the Sea, with its historic buildings and tree-lined streets and aim to work to preserve its legacy and ensure good representation of its residents’.
In my spare time, when not with the family, or involved in some DIY project, I have interests in Historic Buildings, Classic Cars & Bikes, Amateur Radio, and Early Electronics.
