I am originally from London where I had a long telecommunications career in R&D and project management. In my leisure time I spent ten years as Chairman and a team manager of a local youth football club. I have taught part-time in a Young Offenders’ Institute supporting young people in changing their behaviour patterns. I have also spent ten years as a Samaritan where I piloted a one-to-one listening service and a “Buddies” training scheme within local schools.
After experiencing Wimborne Minster, its vibrancy, its sense of community and its surrounding natural beauty many years ago I finally moved down from Staffordshire in 2011 to live here. I am a member of Wimborne Camera Club and Wimborne War on Waste. Community is what makes Wimborne so special, and I feel passionately that this inclusive ideal is to be nurtured. This is why I stood for Town Councillor – I want to make a difference.
