Additional Information

I have lived in North Norfolk for the past 16 years and during this time I have owned a number of businesses in the hospitality industry.


I have always been interested in property development, especially the provision of social housing. For 9 years I served on the Board of Victory Housing Trust as a non-executive director and when my term of office came to an end, I stood for election in May 2015 and was fortunate to be elected as the District Councillor for Lancaster South (Fakenham) and I continue to serve in this role as an Independent Councillor.


I enjoy both classical and jazz music and greatly appreciate the number of concerts held at various venues throughout North Norfolk.
