Councillor Bio

I joined Sandwich Town council in 2007 and have served on many different committees and projects to improve the Town over the years. I have strongly supported planning issues having successfully fought major developments on green belt land. I have worked to improve traffic and parking, having been on Joint Transport Board for six years now. I have supported local businesses having served on the Chamber of Commerce for a number of years. And supported services for the elderly fighting for ten years to save Wayfarers and to keep Sandwich Library open. I have always supported youth matters having saved and assisted with the Phoenix Youth Hub and children's playgrounds and Sandwich Tennis club by fighting their closure by DDC many years ago and making sure they are maintained adequately. I am now Deputy Chair of Governors at Sandwich Technology School having been a school governor for eighteen years in total. I support the heritage of Sandwich as Secretary of Sandwich society and Deputy Chairman of Sandwich Local History Society which I have supported for many years now. I was a Dover district councillor from 2011 to 2019 where I strongly fought for better services for Sandwich, Woodnesborough and Worth. I have been Chair of Sandwich Christmas lights and long serving committee member of Sandwich Festival and supported th early medieval events for many years  in our town. I remain committed to maintaining services, facilities and supporting our local traders and tourism to the town.  I have been the towns curfew captain twice and served as a curfew ringer for 13 years.
