I became a Parish Councillor when I retired a few years ago from a Cambridge high-tech firm. I have had to get used to the formality of a Parish Council but procedures have to be followed and be seen to be followed – that is the way of public life. My wife (who is active in the local branch of the Women’s Institute) and I have been resident for 30 years in the village where we brought up our two now grown-up daughters.
One of the things that attracted me to the Council was the ambitious plan to develop a community hub in the village fit for the 21st century. With Northstowe and the A14 reconstruction on our doorstep it is an understatement to say the Council has a lot on its plate. To address this however we have a proactive and very constructive group of Councillors from a wide range of backgrounds with whom I very much enjoy working.Roles
