Borough (Central Sandhurst)
Shortly after moving to Sandhurst in 1988, I became a Town Councillor. From that time I took a particular interest in planning as this has a significant impact on our quality of life. I was on the planning committee as vice chairman and then chairman.
In 2007 following the Borough elections I chose planning as one our committees. This has enabled me to shape the long term development of Sandhurst by ensuring that any proposals are both proportionate and sympathetic to the environment.
In addition I chose our Licensing committee where we can determine the impact on nearby residents of extended hours, changes to entertainment format etc. As with planning decisions, we have the interests of our residents at heart. This ensures that only applications that are appropriate will be approved.
For the last 8 years I have chaired our Neighbourhood Action Group meetings. These take place every three months and are attended by Head teachers, police, Residents Associations, councillors and residents with specialist knowledge. By liaising with the relevant department at Bracknell Forest Council we have secured positive outcomes. These include 20 M.P.H. limits, double yellow lines, increased parking etc.
With your support we can build on the quality of life, evidenced by the excellent facilities at our much lauded Memorial Park.

Borough (Central Sandhurst)
Having lived in Sandhurst for the past 23 years, I retired from United Airlines in 2011, as a senior manager responsible for employee performance. During my 41 years of problem solving in a fast moving customer service facing environment I was also responsible for training numerous personnel to deal with difficult and emergency situations.
Subsequently, I went into adult education at Bracknell College, teaching English to foreign students and Portuguese to English students. I also speak French and Spanish.
In 2015 I was elected Town Councillor representing Central Sandhurst, and am currently Vice-Chairman of the Environment committee. My particular interest is in recycling and landfill waste management. I also sit on the Planning committee and have focused upon preventing inappropriate development to help maintain an environment that everyone can enjoy. In addition, I served as the Council’s representative at the Sandhurst Museum Trust and currently represent the Council at the Sandhurst Day Centre for the elderly, where I am also a Trustee. In January I was elected Chairman of the Central Sandhurst Conservative Branch.
Bracknell Forest is recognised as one of the best places to live in England. Its community spirit, the mix of small and big businesses, the high quality of local health services, schools, parks and open spaces, makes it a special place to live, work and thrive. I will strive to protect the development of these attributes. If elected to the Borough Council, I am committed to working hard and do the best job I can for all the residents of Bracknell Forest.
