I have lived in the parish for the last 44 years.
I would class myself as an approachable sort of chap that gets on with most people.
I am one of the Parish Councillors in the Nythe, Eldene & Liden Parish Council, currently Vice-chair; I would class myself as an active member of the council.
I am the chair of the Meres Residents Association; and am actively involved with maintenance and conservation in the local area.
I am the treasurer/manager of Buckhurst Park Community Centre and have been running the centre for the last ten years. I provide a level of welfare support from the centre for the community.
I have been a trustee of Voluntary Action Swindon for the last nine years and a member of the property sub-committee looking after at John Street and Sanford House.
I am also the President of North Wilts Hockey Club and I am still involved with those that play competitive hockey.
