I spent over 43 years in the IT and telecommunications industry, including senior commercial roles with the RACAL Communications Group and also Cable & Wireless.
I moved with my family to live in Three Mile Cross in 2003 having previously resided in Lower Earley for over 20 years. Hence I have first-hand experience of the impact of major developments from many perspectives.
I joined Shinfield Parish Council some six years ago and am a member of its Planning and Highways Committee. I am now the Chairman of the Council as well as Chairing the Neighbourhood Planning Educationand Childcare Focus Group.
I am currently Vice-chair of the Lambs Lane Primary School Board of Governors.
