I was born into a farming family so the countryside has always been a part of my life. I chose a different career path, going into the contruction industry where I worked for a national contractor based in London. The experience of working in a congested environment helped me appreciate the recreational benefits of the countryside.
As a member of Chignal Parish Council and Vice Chairman of the Village Hall Committee I am also actively involved in the local community.
I enjoy walking the network of Public Rights of Way and am keen to encourage others to take advantage of these valuable assets. We must ensure that they are maintained, improved and used for furture generations.
