Borough (Crowthorne)
Town/Parish (Crowthorne)

It has been a privilege and pleasure to serve Crowthorne residents both at Borough and Parish Councils for over 40 years and I have found the village a very friendly and caring community.

We live in very challenging times, nationally due to the significant economic pressures and locally due to the increasing pressures for more development.

We have several major development proposals in Crowthorne and, if re-elected, I will continue to do my best to ensure that the necessary facilities are satisfied and delivered.

As the Borough Council Voluntary Sector Champion, I have seen the wonderful work done by local volunteers and charities, who deserve our very grateful thanks. I am very pleased to be associated with many of these groups. Voluntary groups require more helpers and I ask everyone if they could spend a few hours helping others. Many of those who do so, say they are amazed at how much pleasure there is in volunteering. In addition to helping the young, the elderly and the disabled; volunteers are required at many sporting venues, schools, churches, etc.

My current Borough Council commitments include serving on the Overview and Scrutiny Commission, Environment, Culture & Communities O&S Panel (Chairman), Appeals (Chairman), Licensing and Safety, Planning, Access (Vice-Chairman), Edgbarrow & Sandhurst Sports Centre Management (Chairman) and Standards committees. I organised the banners displayed in the High Street and Station Parade shopping areas during the Carnival, late night Christmas Shopping Event.

Town/Parish (Crowthorne)

As a resident of Crowthorne for 43 years; I have been an active participant in local village, church, school and community affairs.

Having been a Councillor for Bracknell Forest Council and Crowthorne Parish Council for the past 18 years, I have been in a position to try and ensure that Crowthorne maintains its unique identity and sense of place.

Recent Crowthorne and south Wokingham development proposals are substantial and potentially quite intrusive on our village way of life. As in the past, I am determined that any changes are harmonious and appropriately supported by the necessary infrastructure improvements.

Further, I am a keen to cooperate with and promote the various village liaison groups; including the Crowthorne and Wokingham-Without Parish Councils working with local interest groups. I have a strong desire to forge links throughout our village. This vision gave birth to the Crowthorne Eye Community Magazine, which has given a voice to residents and businesses for the past 20 years.

As Small Business Champion for BFC, I am an advocate for local businesses and promote their needs throughout the Borough. I have been a Board member of BF Homes for the past 8 years; improving and enhancing over 7,000 homes and looked after the lives of 1,000+ Leaseholders.

Apart from my Council work, I am a choir member at St John\'s Church, a Governor of Edgbarrow School and enjoy walking and photography.
